HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!!

 

MATSUTAKE

Florence done more or less.  Some coming into Coos Bay.  Cave Junction putting out a few.  Brookings moribund.   Ft. Bragg-Willits putting out a few flags.  Price in the $4-$6 range.

WINTERS

Feet out now but slow in many spots.  Baby trumpets being picked in quantity by some crews—price dropped to $4 for a while and then rebounded some.  Some hogs coming from North Cascades.  Hog and foot prices awful. Some pickers have moved down to Willits in hope of better times there after heavy rains.

CHANTERELLES

Much freeze-damaged/soggy product out there—with good stuff about 25% of the total.  Prices all over the board for those still buying.

 

NOTICE: 

Regular issues of WMH will end as of Dec. 31st, 2014.  I’ll try to keep up useful links and will pass along occasional news.  Hard to believe 16 years have passed since I started this website.  All of us, alas, are destined to grow old…Shroomer Tom.
