When the asparagus starts I start looking for mushrooms. I have found lots of oysters this year. Am looking forward to the puffballs later this year. I haven't found morels on my place. I need to go find some and bring the spores here.
Distill safe. Make good cuts. Enjoy yourself. Give as much as you take. Have fun doing this incredibly hard work. Be a good example. It's your hobby.

I'm north of you pint, found 2 shrooms on tuesdays hunt.
A grey and a yellow morel about 10 ft apart along a railroad track
right at the edge of the gravel.
I feel sorry for people who don't drink. When they wake up in the morning, that's as good
as they're going to feel all day.

Good fortune takes preparation.

Found a yellow morel 2 yrs ago measured exactly 11" tall it was the biggest I've ever seen, I'll see if I can find the pic. I don't see them until mid June here in east OR,. It was a little old so no eating this one.

We're coming into Autumn now. The Milky Caps and slippery Jacks would be in the forest now, i just haven't had time or inclination to go hunting.

I understand that shit all too well. Seems that there is so much other stuff to do. Correction, so much shit my SO has me doing that I've got to get her done first :wink: . On the other hand if I can hold on till mushy season she"ll be out in the woods with me :8) . Slippery jacks are very abundant here the hard part is gettin to em for the worms do. But if your able and clean them right OH what a fruity delight. ADD king boletes are a rare treat and probably the best damn eatin fungis there is next to the mories.

We used to get morels when we lived in southern illinois, but I don't know if there are any here in the north part of west virginia. When I was back on the farm, I tried to get morel patches started but never had any luck...just had to go where they grew naturally.

MB, I'm in PA as well but don't know where to start looking. Do you have any advice, or a link to a good website? Normally I wouldn't even consider collecting wild mushrooms, but morels are kind of distinct and also rather tasty.

Yes they are tasty usually southern hillsides near water and large poplar trees right after a good rain and temps around 70
Good luck not an easy find

1-1/2 years ago visiting my wife's cousin in Norway they had just harvested a ton of morels they were canning actually in the oven. That night we had what I would deem the best mushroom soup or for that matter the best soup I have ever tasted in my life.
