It sounds easy but it’s not. First all the criteria for mushroom growth have to be met and then you have to find them. You have to have a gift for mushroom gathering … and good luck. I guess I’m one of the lucky ones as I usually bring home full basket.
We mostly gather boletus mushrooms as we’re most familiar with them and there are lots of them in our woods.
How many do you see on the below photo? They’re hard to find in the woods also.
Here is how my mushroom/chestnut hunt ended. I already made mushroom soup, but chestnut is still waiting to be served. Maybe the luck will have it that all the Parakeets ladies will roast it together.
Big to all of you who went mushroom hunting with me.
