   They say to help propogate them you take the wash water and throw it back out where they like to grow. Any spores may be helped along that way. i don't know about the SALT water, tho. They supposedly like elm and wood ash- and there was something else but I don't remember what it was..lw

LW,
10-4 on the elm-ash. That's where I found all of
mine among the dead elms and living ash trees.

Hey LW, glad to see you're back.  Do we get a report from you journey or is that in another thread.  We had 2 brush fires on Tuesday, hit em hard and they were both under an Acre.  It's drier than it looks around here.  
Jeff, I've seen Morels for sale in that price range also, but for the time involved, I think profits are low.  BWW

I am at both ends of the 20 dollar price. No way in heck am I paying 20 a lb for shrooms, and if I had some, no way in heck am I selling em for only 20 a lb. :D

Earlier they were at $30.00/lb, then $20.00/lb. and now I'm seeing them at $10.00/lb. around here. There seems to be a heavy crop this year and a lot of heavy picking.

Found a "bunch" of them last week in an aspen area we harvested last year at this time.

Wish I'd known you wanted some. I left some in the woods today while marking timber. Too far in and I'm sick of them. Your soup was better. If I get anymore, they're yours.

Jeff, that was easy, no woods walking.

I found 3 like that in my yard about 19 years ago also. Have looked in the same spot every year since and there haven't been any. Makes one wonder on their mystery appearances.

Found a baseball cap full of 'em last Saturday. I fell a tree on 'em. So, I was cutting limbs and pickin' shrooms at the same time.

Gosh they tasted good! ;D

Just got a call yesterday from a woman I work with.  She got a bunch of oyster mushrooms and she wanted to give me some  ;D    I stopped by around five in the afternoon, and didn't leave until I had eaten a plate of fried oyster mushrooms, drank a few beers with her, and carried off a bag of raw mushrooms, BBQ'ed ribs, and a bug hunk of rum cake  :)

The landowner sent me this photo of his find right behind me a couple days ago as we were harvesting his aspen area. He said that it was the first time that he has ever found any mushrooms on his property.

Timber harvest produces mushrooms!!! Witte timber harvest; 5/03.
