Hi all,

I thought this might be useful for anyone that lives in the northeast that is new to mushroom foraging. Obviously, climates vary dramatically even within NE, but I've collected this data over the last few years in the Adirondack/Vermont region. I think it might be a helpful timetable and general information guide for people that are looking for a place to start in regards to finding wild mushrooms. There are many more edible mushrooms, but these are what I consider the best and most abundant in this region. I'm sure there are people on this forum that are far more knowledgable than I am when it comes to the fungal world, so please comment with corrections/questions. These pictures are intended to provide general knowledge, always be 100% you have the right mushroom before eating. There are countless books/guides that are extremely helpful to have in the field. Good luck and happy foraging!

This is a very useful chart, Walker. I don't live in the NE, but the ideas can be adapted for other areas. Even knowing that some mushrooms like humid rainy summer climates can help us figure out how best to cultivate them or where to find them.

Awesome! Love the time line. I live in New York close to the Vermont border. Double helpful!
