Mariton: Wet and Warm
by Tim Burris, Preserve Manager
Since mid-July we have received over 10 inches of rain at Mariton. That is a lot of rain. With the recent hot spells it feels downright tropical. Several species of fungi love this weather and have sent up their fruiting bodies (mushrooms). Here a couple examples of boletes that I saw on a recent walk. I don’t eat wild mushrooms, even the ones I know are edible. Please remember the adage: “take only pictures…” and leave the mushrooms for other people’s cameras.
