Good day in the woods, found 28 nice whites. Still slow around KY as for mushrooms, hopefully next couple days will "pop" them up.

Thanks mountain state farm, I found a couple today that i should have let grow, but turkeys are so bad on my paps place i was afraid to let them grow, everywhere i found a couple the ground would be tore up all around it, so i was thinking the turkeys got the rest of them before i got there.

Just about every animal in the woods like them here. I usually find them first part of April but I guess the long winter has held them back a few weeks. Enjoy.

Splinter, you won't find these at Wally-World.

When I was a kid back in So. Illinois we had a  morel sniffin' dog.Once, my family and I found a burlap bag full of morels.It was crazy,almost like an Easter egg hunt.Since moving to Vermont it's a different story.

It is still too cold around here!  Lows in the upper 20s or 30s and highs too often in the 40s. Good thing is that with all the rain we should have a better chance of a good shroom year.

Many if us expect to go from winter to summer overnight,  sure hope to find lots this year.

Probably not a big deal to pick them, as some will always be missed, and most of the organism lives below ground as mycelium. The mushroom is only the fruiting body for releasing spores to start new ones in favorable locations.

I hear stories of morels up in the mountains around here, but have yet to see one. :'(

We used to find lots of them in Ohio, especially around dead elms. Also they are supposed to do well in old apple orchards. There are quite a bit of them at the farm in MO, both in scattered patches with no discernable reason and under dead elms. You can usually count on finding them under a dead elm within a couple years of them dying and for a few years after that. Wish I was back there right now.

Elms around here is just about a thing of the past,about five years ago the ones that were 6/10 inches died and I made a killing for a few years . But sence theres just not many here anymore. Iam wondering if all the dead white ash maybe we will get a run on them again  ;D.

Every one of these were found under dying elms, I went back to the same trees today to see if i missed any and found 12 more, with one prob 6" tall dont know how i missed that one but i did. Anyway i found 5 that were really small and since i have a couple days worth i figured i would let them grow for a couple days, so a stack the deak elm bark around all four of them and put wet leaves over them with just the top of the mushroom showing, hopefully nothing gets them, i plan on going back thursday to check on them.

On a side note i prob walked 5 miles below and above where i found these and found NOTHING, the trees i were finding these under were very distinctm a dark bare elm tree still standing strong, i looked around and under several dead elms the fell and found nothing, looked pretty much in every supposed "hot spot" and still yet nothing, i dont know if its just the ground in my one honey hole but no where else on the 120 acres is producing

 :D :D We have all kinds of mushrooms, but too early. But I have no idea about what you can eat. I know the jays sack lots in the fall and hide them in the fir trees. The chipmunks hide them in hollow trees. And a lot grow out of trees like aspen, which are conks, but not good for eat'n.

You fellas have probably learned from family and friends. Pickers of 'shrooms are rare up here. Up here we are too busy picking fiddle heads for $12/lb *organic* landed in Toronto  (I still laugh over that one) in the spring and tipping fir bows in the fall $0.40/lb.  ;D Must of us don't sell fiddle heads, we just eat'm.

I'm finding very few this year but it's due to drought.  The only ones I'm finding are a little dried up before I pick them.  If we could get a slow steady rain and then have some 70+ temps for a day or two I'd clean up.

This is a nice red or false morrel mushroom a little bigger than a baseball. One of five we've found since Friday.

Those are inedible unless you have another species you can eat. Anything that has fuzz on the head and stem like that you can eliminate from table fare. Ours come up with brown papery scales that rub off when cleaned. And yes they are a beefier fern as they can grow 6 feet tall when they elongate. When they are fully grown they look like a long Ostrich plume.

How were those?

 I have always worried about false morels (Gyromitra esculenta). They can contain monomethylhydrazine (rocket fuel ingredient) and eaten in sufficient quantity can cause severe distress and even death. Thorough cooking in an open pan or drying is reported to drive off the toxin. Don't ever eat one raw.

Yes,  it's said that they are poisonous.   But we soak them in salt water and then fry them. Both actions drive off the poison.  Plus it's said that you build up a tolerance.   Never hurt me or mine none.

My sister went by Tractor Supply parking lot and there were two men there saling white mushrooms for $20/half pound. Said they found over 100 pounds of mushrooms along the Missouri River.  They were searching from a boat.  Said they sold out in 1/2 hour.

I think I'll go fiddlehead searching today. I never saw any up 2 days ago, but it's sure been warm. So they must be up. I have a patch right near the road, 2 steps off the road and start pick'n. :D
Move'n on.

  Here in northern Ohio I've been looking now for a few days and today I saw your post and decided to look some more, well, hello hello, I found some.  I did leave maybe 20 or more as they were still small.  I think some of the really small ones may be the big yellows yet to pop.

I had one that was put out by the Ontario government and it went into which could be eaten. Audubon and probably Peterson have a guide book, but I'm not sure if they go into edibility.
Move'n on.

Morels are very easily identified. They look like a sponge and are hollow. They come in grey black brown and giant yellow. Normally only occur in spring when the redbuds bloom. We find them around elm and apple trees. The only other mushroom I hunt are the giant puffballs that come out in the fall
