You Know Fall is Coming When...

It is puffball time already.  The air is cooler, the clouds are fluffier, the days are shorter and the puffballs are in the fields.  Last week we had the largest puffball I have ever seen in our bush.  It was the size of a beachball and weighed about 5 pounds.  It was also the tastiest muhroom we have ever had.  I wasn't expecting any yet, as they usually arrive in October, but I had spread some spores there last fall from an over ripe puffball. and with all the rain and cooler weather, it just grew.  Yummy.
