Explored new trails in Grafton. Went to low ground where there were swampy areas. Even the swamps are drying out. As I drove up to the conservation land I noticed some Platterful next to the road that looked in good shape, though a bit dry. I decided to harvest them just in case this is all I will get :o)
On the White Trail I first found a Chicken-fat Suillus.
Further down the trail I found many fallen oak that had no
bark. Right on top of one I noticed two small clumps of young Chicken of
Then I found about 6 clumps of what I would call Chicken
Buds on different logs and stumps.
I was told this is the kind to eat. I will try it again and see if I will raise my personal rating from "Edible".
