If you are talking specifically morels I've been finding them here for a couple weeks but it hasn't been a very great year thus far.  Still time in the season though and we are in the middle of a big rain event. Hope to pick a few more tomorrow.

Mushrooms are a late summer/fall thing here (Norway), but (our version of) ramps have started to pop up.

The spore Shadow is maybe the most accurate way.  some mushrooms are hard to mess up, start with those. I like to pick some bring them home and attempt to identify. It is a bit scary to eat one you have never tried.

I've always been told that the best way is to feed them to your cat first and if the cat doesn't die, they're ok to eat. ;)

I will be looking for morels next week. One of my sugar bushes has them in spots, I usually find them as I pull the maple taps there.

:D :D All are edible, some only once. Although I really like fresh mushrooms I don't pick either. Leave it to the pros.

I watch the lilac bushes. When they start to bloom then it is time to look for morels. 
I think we are at least two weeks away. Last year was a pretty good year and I hope this year is at least that good.

That is also the time when the white bass run up the rivers to spawn here.

 Found 1 morel late last week but didn't have time to look much. Today I found 80-90 but had to leave quite a few that were already too old and mush or dried out. I wish I checked better last week lol. Still brought home a good batch though. It's been pretty good weather for them here though the ground got a little dry last week.

Wanting to know the difference between the MOREL and the FALSE MOREL.

I think I have it, but not sure!

The cap on the MOREL is fastened to the stem at the bottom, and the cap on the FALSE MOREL is fastened to the stem up inside!

Is that correct?
