    1. And I have a HUGE backlog of photos that I haven't even gotten to! Our land is full of life, and this season is also particularly good for fungi. It has been a particularly hot, rainy, and humid summer in the Southeast! Posted one year ago, modified one year ago
      1. Huge backlog is an outlook I love, if you're willing to keep sharing it here :) Posted one year ago
      2. We are not having a good mushroom season so far! We have the heat and humidity, but hardly any rain! The weather in the Northeast has been so fickle. :/ Posted one year ago
