This year there are plenty of mushrooms in mushroom locations of the Krasnoyarsk region. Literally, in every district. Even in the Far North, in the tundra. The only thing to do is to remember the secrets from the best mushroom pickers and you can go to the forest ... Thinking about fried potatoes with mushrooms ... Mmm ...
► If you really want to pick a lot of mushrooms, wait a day or two after the rain.
► Move away from the road deep into the forest for at least a kilometer. And from a country road for 300-500 meters. Mushrooms, like a sponge, absorb all the dirt.
► In old and dark forests, there are very few mushrooms, and in young ones it is full of them.
► Mushrooms love rare and short grass.
► In dry weather, drive into a wet forest. In damp weather, go up to a hill.
► It is better to pick mushrooms at dawn, while it is cool. Mushroom caps are not hot in the sun and are more likely to stay fresh until the evening.
► Mushrooms don't like plastic. Collect them in a basket, like in the good old days.
► Look for chanterelles in birch or aspen forests. Pay special attention to the slopes, there are most of them there.
► Boletes hide in pine forests, but sometimes they can be found in mixed forests.
► Porcini mushrooms usually grow in light birch forests or in a coniferous forest.
► Look for honey mushrooms in a deciduous forest where there are more aspens and birches, often in forest clearings. They usually grow on stumps (including conifers), but they can also be found in grass.
► Birch boletes love sunny outskirts and glades, hills with rare trees. Their frequent companions are all kinds of russula.
► Pick saffron milkcaps in pine forests.
► Milkcaps grow in damp mixed forests.
Usually birch-aspen, with spruce. If you find the largest, often rotted, old
mushroom called the "master", open the moss around - most likely, the
"family" is nearby.
