BONNERS FERRY — Joe Ward found a big surprise on his property on Westside Road, in the form of a giant puffball mushroom, larger than a basketball. His grandchildren got a chance to help harvest it in its peak of ripeness and they watched in amazement as the giant fungus was carved up and prepared.

Eight year old Elissa Cleve didn’t like mushrooms, but she was excited enough to try it.

“The butter makes it taste good,” she said, rating it 8.5 out of 10.

Mushroom loving, 10-year-old Isaac Cleve said it was five times better than the farm raised mushrooms he had earlier that day.

“I’ve never seen a mushroom that big,” he said. “It is amazing how mushrooms here can grow that big and how we found one that was edible.”

The wet spring has made for a bountiful Boundary County.
