Hello everyone, maybe someone has asked ” but the friar has remitted his vows”? Or is he so busy picking mushrooms that he doesn’t even notice us anymore? None of this: it was a complicated year for everyone and I had to dedicate my time to various other aspects which, like everyone, have made life more complicated! And so it was also my beloved passion that lost out, with outputs practically at a glance and always ” stolen ” from the other more urgent needs.
I also had to renounce the repatriations that, respecting the rules, were organized by various friends to spend a few hours in the woods, and I apologize, but I’m sure that soon we will resume all our rites and customs with even more enthusiasm. , traditions and jokesin search of our beloved and coveted porcini. Despite this, I have always been updated in time on the exploits of the various super mushroom makers who have ventured into the woods.
First of all for a frightening summer throw (the friar’s mushroom farm shot 17 of them out in a woodpecker, in addition to 8 ovoli….) , followed by a sensational birth of edulis which, as happens every year now, was sensationally ” drowned ” by a week of torrential rains that sent everything to ramengo. But that’s also part of the game!
Despite this damned virus, we managed to set up the World Championship anyway, with 100 competitors who ventured to 0 Km, through the use of mobile videos published on social networks and voted here by everyone, before (and hopefully last) of World mushroom Twitter online and which translated means ” everyone in his woods” … .. and which translated back into simplichese means ” without meeting, laughing and joking together for a whole weekend“ and this, I must say, I missed a lot in how much has become a unique opportunity to meet friends known over the years on that specific date! But we will do it again, if we do it again, including interests!
I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone who participated in this ” strange edition “, above all for the enthusiasm that was never subdued, because I understand that it was not easy to make films, which are spectacular, and to find the time and way to publish them; we are in fact drawing up the final ranking and the winners and the relative videos will be published shortly, while for the prizes, since I am still in the orange zone .. I keep them all !
