Mushrooms are coming up like roses!

Wild treats still abound!

A little bird has told me that the first chanterelles (girolles) in Quebec have been spotted! Though mushrooms usually sprout earlier on the West Coast, it is very possible that you will not have seen your first summer shrooms yet, as you have not had much rain of late. However, do not despair: mushrooms will pop up at the first signs of rain, so keep your eyes and ears peeled!

I've noticed that samphires (salicornes)are still to be had. If you haven't tried these sprigs of saltiness, do try them when you get your hands on them. They'll sate a salty tooth.

Bon app'!
