Pine Mushrooms Today
Found only 15 lbs of pines today, mostly buttons as the area had been picked and the abundance is lower for most mushrooms this year. Also the student got lost today for most of the day, so a different lesson was learned. Pay Attention where start from and where you go, it helps if you can find your way back to the truck, not that a night in the woods has to be a big discomfort, but it can be if you are not prepared. Fire can be important if one is wet and cold. Carry a lighter when you go picking, if you get lost or break a leg, one can always make a fire. Student found his way back at the end of the day, all is well, lesson learned, you do not pick many mushrooms when lost.
