SOME 'SHROOM! | Nadine Lamson of Royalton harvested this giant puffball mushroom on August 25, just three days before Irene. Flooding news sidelined this story, but we knew Herald readers would want to see the 2 pound, 1 foot in diameter beauty. It bloomed under a lawn chair right next to Nadine's garden, where it was kept moist and shaded from direct sun. (Herald / Bob Eddy)
