Shroom Season
Mushrooms do very well in Cape Breton - some years better than others, depending upon the amount of rainfall and other factors. This year is a good one. The woods and the meadows everywhere on the island are bursting with all kinds of mushrooms, many of which are not only edible but delicious. Below is a fair sampling of this year's "haul": meadow mushrooms, horse mushrooms, king boletes, chanterelles, puff balls and butter mushrooms. There are also photos of some poisonous mushrooms as well as some that we can't identify - those were left in place.
