A summer for mushrooms
We are going to take a few days and see a little of Austria next week. I thought that we would camp at night, see a few sites and drive through the Alps before my son starts school September the 7th. This has been a wet and cool summer for us. It is hard to plan outings between showers. Not a good year for swimming at all with temperatures in the 50’s and 60’s. It feels more like Fall. However it is a good year for mushrooms. I go each Tuesday with my neighbor into the woods to hunt for mushrooms. They are plentiful this year. I have porcini mushrooms drying in every window of the house. I have canned pickled mushrooms and made mushroom dishes till we don’t appreciate them anymore. Never the less I enjoy going to the forest and walking in the woods so I continue to go and collect mushrooms. It is like picking up sea shells on the beach. You just can’t pass them by. I have become more selective though. I only pick the best ones and leave the rest for someone else.
