Every experienced mushroom picker has his own signs when he should go to pick mushrooms. Someone goes to the forest, waiting for fogs, someone warm rain, and someone, when they see the first forest mushrooms collected in the area on sale at the city market. An inexperienced mushroom picker, who wants to bring home a full basket, wonders how to look for mushrooms correctly and where they usually grow. There are subtleties of searching for mushroom fields on forest edges.

Step 1

The first spring mushrooms are morels, the lines can be found at the edge of the forest (approximately in the middle of spring, in April), in the moss near forest paths, near the felling of trees, in places where many bonfires were kindled earlier, near stumps, in a mixed grove of conifers and deciduous trees.

Step 2

Starting in the second half of the first month of summer, you will find several types of mushrooms at once. Mushroom places are forests and groves where birches and aspens grow, where many dry leaves, rare grass have been lying on the ground since last summer, the ground is moist, rich in humus.

Step 3

Pick mushrooms early in the morning. Their caps, shiny with dew, are very clearly visible in the withered grass and can be seen from afar. In addition, mushrooms harvested in the morning are the most fragrant.

Step 4

Look for porcini and boletus in ravines, along roads and forest paths, under coniferous trees or in moss. After cutting off one porcini mushroom, look nearby to see if there are any more mushrooms, as they usually do not grow one at a time.

Step 5

You will find oil in the low grass. They are well camouflaged with leaves adhering to them with blades of grass. In the same places, mushrooms live. Do not take old mushrooms, as they are usually eaten by worms, and medium, strong ones with a cap concave inward will be just right for dinner.

Step 6

Milk mushrooms love moist pine forest. And boletus and aspen mushrooms grow most often under trees with the same names. Look for russula in swampy areas, they are bright and visible to the naked eye where there is a lot of moisture in the ground.

Step 7

Chanterelles can be found on forest edges where there is a lot of light. Rake the needles that have fallen to the ground, perhaps under it you will find a whole family of chanterelles. Honey mushrooms love to groom tree stumps or grow on the trees themselves, therefore they are clearly visible even from a distance.
