We have enjoyed lovely weather around these parts for some time and while that is pleasant enough, it’s time for a couple days of rain. Normally at this time, I’d be thinking about which forests to visit in search of the first chanterelles of the season. Without rain, though, there isn’t going to be many mushrooms fruiting.
Is it too much to hope for a few good rainfalls in July? I looked at the long-range forecast for the enchanted mushroom forest, and from a forager’s perspective, it isn’t good. There are a few days with possible thunderstorms or scattered showers predicted, but I didn’t see any sustained rains in the forecast at all.
I guess I’ll have to stay home and play the banjo instead.
