Yes, first there was a nice crop in late May, and I’ve already been finding a few this month (probably because of cooler weather). The peak season for these, however, is in the fall. I’m counting on Mother Nature’s munificence as I almost exhausted my somewhat meager supplies from last year. :) I almost never eat these fresh, drying them instead for future use in soups and vegetable dishes. Pickling is another good way to unlock their flavor, but storage has been a problem for me in the past for anything but a small batch. I never tried marinating, so I might experiment this year.

Very nice photo IG
