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.
