The Ethics of Mushroom Picking

May 15, 2011


I hadn't appreciated the ethics of mushroom picking until now. I knew vague things about picking with a mesh bag so that spores can drop. But, really, it sounds like we need to leave a few, plus little and old ones, and also leave as much stem as possible.

Buffs also do transplanting -- stashing good 'shrooms in likely spots.

Hard picking wrecks sites -- we don't want that.

Heads-up!
