We’ve had 2″ of rain in the last 3 days. A bit early, and it feels good after the long dry period we always have (almost 6 months). Each year I seem to be late in getting porcinis, so this season I’m starting early. Not a fungi in sight at my porcini meadows yesterday, but this well-developed cauliflower mushroom was sitting next to a rotting pine stump.
It’s flavorful. Sauteed last night and mixed with potatoes and chicken gravy, then this morning in a potato-chard-onion omelette.
Today I’m starting to get ready for my talk at the SF Green Festival on Saturday, Nov. 6th on “The Half-Acre Homestead in the 21st Century.” Am shooting pics of house, compost bins, garden and building tools, the stuff that keeps this place running.
