but a lot of mushrooms in this area are early this year. Global warming, microclimate, or the fact that we’ve had more variable temps this year with some 80’s in early May, 90’s late May, 90’s early June with cool wetter weather interspersed?
You must have a short summer season in Maine. :) We don’t start seeing these down here in NJ till late September. I always thought the gypsy was a fall mushroom…
