Mushroom excursion second weekend in October

Mushroom excursion second weekend in October

Mushroom excursion in Brekendorf and Schleswig

07 and 08 October 2023

We were lucky with the weather on both days, even though it was a bit wetter in Schleswig, but the forest holds most of the drizzle.

Even though this year seems to be just getting started, there was already a lot to be found.

Of course, I also brought back some beautiful photos, so I’m starting to think about pulling out my mobile phone at the same time.

Beautiful mushroom variety at the start of the season

01 October 2023

Now it’s here, my beloved autumn and the mushrooms are starting to sprout again, so I’ll take you with me on my first excursion.

Despite light rain, all participants were in high spirits and so we set off to explore the Brekendorf forest.

The forest offered us a great variety of edible, inedible and poisonous mushrooms at the start of the season🍄.
It was really beautiful to watch and I brought a few photos for you:

Adventure in forest and moor

Adventure in forest and moor

A very special herb and mushroom hike on 04.08.2023

What is growing there? The power of wild herbs ♥

This time I was booked by vacation guests from the Netherlands for an exclusive hike . The small family with the two children was very, very nice and we got along great.

We roamed the forest, the fields and the nearby moor.
In addition to many, many mushrooms, which is very unusual for this time of year, there were also exciting plants to marvel at.

I have never seen so many green button mushrooms in one spot, the whole path was lined with them, beautiful to look at but also absolutely deadly.

Also “Witches” and Woodear were already to be found.

In a shady spot in the forest was even still woodruff to find, also very unusual.

It was also great fun to make plant tattoos from the juice of the celandine, and the plantane was allowed to show the children what it can do in a careless encounter with the stinging nettle.

The parents spoke perfect German and the kids were totally cute and eager to explore.

It was really very exciting, at a badger hole we found probably the skull of a fox, I didn’t even know that there are badgers in our country.

In the forest we found a ship built from branches.

I thank you very much for this beautiful morning and for the very generous surprise of the family at the end of the hike.

Finally, of course, there was again my plant and recipe reading for home.

Be there next time, it’s always very exciting and entertaining.

I would like to thank all participants and I am already looking forward to the next herb walks at the 11. and August 12, 2023 ♥

Eighth mushroom excursion

Eighth mushroom excursion

A very nice end

06th November 2022

Another time richly endowed …

Now the time has come and the (autumn) mushroom season is slowly coming to an end.

After we had a bit of bad luck with the forest last week, we were again richly blessed this time.

Although it should be too cold for Bay bolete at night, we still found a surprising number of fresh specimens.

Slowly, the first late autumn mushrooms are appearing and provide a nice transition into the cold season.

Some of the following mushrooms were still abundant:

  • Some Brittlegills
  • Chicken of the Woods
  • Brown Birch Boletes
  • Beefsteak Fungus
  • Oyster Mushrooms
  • Amethyst Deceiver
  • Larch Bolete
  • Red Cracking Bolete
  • Aniseed Cockleshell

I have also brought some photos:

Seventh mushroom excursion

Unpredictable nature

29th Oktober 2022

Less finds than expected …

A somewhat different mushroom excursion.

Right at the beginning, I would like to thank my great participants very much ♥♥♥

Nature can be so unpredictable … After our private mushroom excursion yesterday, where we really had a lot of great finds, this time, only a few kilometres away, it was very poor.

Many mushrooms in this forest were already mouldy or outdated, but the odd Brittlegills, Blusher, Amethyst Deceiver or Bay Bolete could still be found.

Forests can be sooo different.

Personally, I thought it was sad, but first and foremost it was about imparting knowledge, and afterwards I received a lot of positive feedback from my participants via WhatsApp, Email or Telegram. Thanks for this ♥

Friends, forest, eating

28th Oktober 2022

Beautiful finds and cooking together

A dear friend picked me up around noon for a private mushroom excursion to the “Hüttener Berge” with old and new friends.

With ten adults and five children, we went to a nearby forest and were able to find really many beautiful mushrooms. Among them were Scarletina Bolete, Blusher, Amethyst Deceiver, Garlic Parachute, Bay Bolete and Red Cracking Bolete ♥

Back again, we immediately processed the mushrooms, cooked together and ate.

Then three more lovely people came to dinner and it was a successful, wonderful evening.

Thanx to Dörte from himmelgrün and all the other participants ♥
