Picking mushrooms

Since it is about to snow any day now, the mushroom season is pretty much over. There are still some left to be found if you know what to look for. When walking my brother's little dog, I found a grand total of two of a type I like a lot. One of them was later chewed up into pieces by the puppy, so today's catch was not that great...


  1. Hmmm... pretty slim pickings. It seems like you have to make do until the next season. At least your brother's dog has had his/her fill.

  2. Luckily, my parents picked enough to feed a small village for a year so I can have as much as I want from their stockpile :-)

    My brother's dog has still not discovered that what humans eat is also food, or that stuff in the woods can be edible. So he only eats his dog food. And grass in my parents' garden, for some reason.

    1. Most dogs will eat grass.It helps them clear their intestines out when their stomachs are upset and noisy.
