A shoutout to our mushroom guru, Milo, who has just recently relocated to the Rocky Mountains: we miss your mushroom-hunting in India!  Besides his ever-intriguing mushroom-identification excursions with the tribal guides in the Periyar Tiger Reserve, and just about everywhere else where he steps foot, Milo’s culinary oyster mushroom cultivation project in Cardamom County’s organic gardens is fondly remembered. After a thoroughly refreshing monsoon season, the time for new cultivation in those gardens is upon us again. This article, from the New York Times, makes us wonder whether Milo’s first post from his new post will be mycologically motivated:

‘If You Are Normal, You Search for Mushrooms’


In Russia, where mushroom hunting is a popular pastime, the author heads into the woods to find a sometimes elusive prize.

    • Hi. Actually mushroom hunting in both Western Europe and North America is more common than you might think. Depending on where you live try looking up regional and local mushroom clubs. They’re out there to be sure! Good luck!
