Off into the woods for mushrooms

The summer is coming to and end. The middle of August has been extremely rainy and wet. This might be annoying but it has its upside as well. The mushrooms are growing.

The woods around Helsinki, especially the big forests as well as the national park Nuuksio in Espoo are the perfect area to pick some mushrooms. And don't worry, much like berry picking mushroom picking is allowed everywhere. Even on private property and in national parks.

But be sure to pick the right once. Always be onehundred percent sure to know the once you are about to pick. And use a knife rather than just ripping them out by the root to protect the plant and give it a chance to regenerate.

Happy picking!
