I love the colors of autumn!
Our property came with two apple trees! If we were finished moving in I’d be making applesauce.
I think the leaves changing has gotten a slow start. Maybe I’ve just lost track of when the maples start to turn but it seems late this year. But I can find color here and there.
I’m surprised that, even with the lack of moisture, the mushrooms are starting to pop up. NEVER eat a mushroom that you are not sure of. Some can cause death. This one, I believe, is a poisonous aminita. Never eat a wild mushroom raw.
A friend told me to slice it open from top to bottom. If you can see the mushroom shape inside, it is not a puff ball. Puff balls are edible when they are young and solid white. I’ve eaten a puff ball. They are good. You can see the cap starting to form in that one though. The left side is the top.
Fishing for chinook is a fun fall activity. We’re just watching so far. We bought our lunch from Subway and watched as we ate lunch. Didn’t see any fish caught yesterday. This is the Alsea Bay bridge in Waldport, OR.
