Yet another good year for the Monkshood (Aconitum × stoerkianum) which is blooming beautifully.

It has grown here as long as I remember and seems to have adapted to the environment.

You just need to remember that all parts of the plant are very poisonous. In other words you can not plant it close to edibles.


Turban Fungus

It is time for the Turban fungi (Gyromitra esculenta). These fungi are considered a delicacy up here in the north. The Turban fungus is deadly poisonous and must be prepared well and the right way.

They emerge early in the spring and now is the best time to harvest them. You can usually find them close to the pine trees.

I consider it to be among the three best edible fungi there is. Cannot wait to have these with a good stake or as a soup.
