There was several Sequoia supplying shade and we have had some thick fogs lately. That may have been enough to spark some growth.

Amazingly lush

given the drought like you said.
Was it a particularly shaded microclimate (like a deep valley on a north-facing slope?).

Thanks Randy.

I have found H. erinaceus during August in this area before. It’s just crazy that we are in a serious drought and this is still fruiting.
