The season for King Salmon opened June 1st. This was the parking lot at the boat launch about a mile from our house on the Skagit. These were just the guys who were still there after church – it was more crowded earlier in the morning.
Our neighbors, Joel and Cindy, came by today and showed us some new (to us) edible mushrooms growing here.
These are Oyster Mushrooms, which grow on stumps and logs of conifers and hardwoods. These are growing on a standing dead alder.
They measure about 2 to 4 inches wide and have a really nice flavor.
