I’ve got some new obsessions in my life. You’ve already heard about my mushroom groove, and many of my students, current and former, find it hysterical. I did Snapchat during a recent mushroom hunt, so I get it. I’ve always been a nerd. Haha! I’m currently reading The Complete Mushroom Hunter: An Illustrated Guide to Finding, Harvesting, and Enjoying Wild Mushrooms. Now, as noted in the book North America is a mycophobic society. I love mushrooms, but I don’t trust myself to identify the right ones no matter how simple this book claims it is (unless they’re Morels, those look pretty distinctive). I do like to snap photos to “collect” the fungi I find. A friend sent me a link to this wonderful Radiolab podcast with some pretty incredible discoveries about the relationship between trees and fungi. Kelly is being a complete dreamboat and sending me photos of all the beautiful mushrooms he’s seen on his retreat for work. I am so jealous it isn’t me!
