Awww the smell of fresh rain. Like our fermentables … a cultural imprint, derived from our ancestors.
We avoid harvesting during or immediately after rainfall.
Foraging or harvesting two days after a rain shower is recommended for fermentables.
The microorganisms have been washed away on the rainy day and haven’t had time to re-establish the following day.
After two fine days they are good for pickin’ and will be full of moisture and the good beasties will be present in heavy concentrations.
