    Hi. I stumbled upon your blog and am sad to have missed the forays. Is it too late on the season to find any now? Any chance you’ll be having another foray?

    And in case you’re wondering, it was a very successful weekend! I found good edible mushrooms (mostly Lobsters, Golden Chanterelles, and Boletes) in every foray, and limited out on Saturday. Check out a photo here: https://twitter.com/ShroomObsessed/status/1438152539510165504

    Hope it was a success
