They are all edible. Some only once. ;D We don't pick them either, we want to know what we are eating.

Found only a few a day for the past 4 days.
Temps and everything are finally in range so I am expecting things to start happening.

Here in NW Indiana my son in law has found a few black sponge (morel) mushrooms in the past week.  With this better temps right now, they should be popping and turning to grey.  Little early for the yellows yet.

Last year I found 26 about the size of a pop can on a farm in southern Indiana. Today the landowner called me and I had showed him where the spot was last spring. He told me he had picked forthy and could see that many more back into the mayapples. Sure wish I was there with him I like to pick sponges   ;D.

OneWithWood, I must live about 25 miles south of you, near Underwood.  I'm not a very good mushroom hunter, but I have a patch in my yard that does well (like 30 one year).  My son found 1 black on April 1, and I've found 6 since then.  I think it's over for that patch this year, unless we get some miracle weather.

We had a good rain on Tuesday and Wednesday was overcast with some light showers.  I went out yesterday (Thursday) and walked the big circuit hitting all the known likely places.  Nothing.  This is the first year my dad's never fail spot failed.

Here in my corner of Arkansas the morels started about a month ago and are  gone now. It was a pretty poor year. I hunt many types of mushrooms but am crazy about morels..... it seems to me the crop we have here pales compared to harvests of more  northly states.

We've got the right moisture but nights have been too cold here.  Maybe next week.

Corley5 I was in Lake Cty this past week and mushroom hunters were like hair on a dogs back. One fellow had 45 grays and held them in his two hands. But was very chily weather.

We've been in the 30s nights up here.  50s at night with good soil moisture is best.  I haven't heard of anyone finding any up here and no one seems to be looking either.  No traffic in the woods today.

Stripper pits were producing a lot this year I hear.  Most people saying it is a terrible year.  I will make one more trip today, but am taking my grape vine saw with me so I can be a little productive when I don't find any mushrooms.

Nothing here yet nights to cool is the general thought. Ramps came up early and are going strong

We come across a lot of different Mushrooms at the Cabin but I don't know anything about them.  Some are real pretty but probably deadly.
Anyone know what this one is?

That's a puff ball at least that's what we call em. I never ate them but there was an article in the local paper about a guy who says they are delicious and had some of his recipes. The only ones I know for sure are morels and they ARE delicious .

Puffballs are safe.  They need to have a smooth texture all the way through.  Be very careful and cut them in half and check that they are not the beginning of another mushroom that has not yet matured.

Ive ate puff balls a number of times but I wasn't that turned on by the taste. We get them here in the woods the tail end of Aug. and first part of Sept. the dryer the fall the better they grow it seems.

Another one from Northern Maine.
This one seemed to grow soon after I had mowed.  I think this was only a couple days later.
Notice the dried field grass next to it.

If you are talking about Morrells.....good stuff but...they look pretty much identical but with a one difference that makes one editable and the other not....Funny thing is ya can't always count on the "usual place" to find them because the growth span is 5 years.
