Mushroom time

Heavenly shades of night are falling
It's mushroom time
Out of the mist a voice is calling
It's mushroom time
When purple colored curtains
Mark the end of the day
It must be mushroom time

I don't know about the magic ones in Mizzou hawk. Maybe in the southeast part. They are more in Georgia and 'Bama I think. You probably do have morels ( this blogs subject ) in the spring sometime. Probably late March , early April.

Heya, Brick. If you ever have an overload abundance of Sponges again, look me up. I am in the area.  I live west of the other park in the area and found maybe 5 lbs this year. Of course, I only went once.

A good year is 100 plus pounds so it was a little weak this year. I just give them away to elderly folk around here that can't get out in the woods any more but love mushrooms. Most people around here sell them for upwards of 20 dollars a pound but that is bad karma.

Hey Brick! 35 pounds sounds pretty good. I really don't know anything about mushroom hunting except what I learned in my mis-spent youth. Trust me - you don't want to get caught with any shrooms like those! Anyway, what did you do with the 35 pounds?

Still finding some big yellow morels out there so the year has definitely extended. The State Park we camped in raises shitakes off of innocculated oak logs. Cool!

-Hey Brick, definitely an interesting idea for a blog!

-Can't say as I've ever gone hunting for mushrooms (at least your garden variety), but I do love 'em.  Love portabellos and shitakes.  Fortunately the Japanese also love their mushrooms, and they are actually pretty reasonable here (they call them "kinoko", which loosely translates as "child of the tree"-  very interesting...).

Well I'm back from my vacation and have to say the mushrooms were a little disappointing this year but they are still coming up so I may get lucky yet. We found about 35 pounds which is far below normal so hopefully the coming days can pick up the slack.

I usually go mushroom hunting every year but my father fell and broke his hip so I'm taking care of him instead of hunting down mushrooms.  Man, I'm gonna miss that.....Hopefully get back to em next year....Those of you going, good luck to ya.....The past few years I haven't done all that well.....It always seems the conditions are less than favorable for one reason or another. 

 

My father found a black morel one time that was 11 inches high by 7 inches wide.  Got his name and picture in the paper with it.  Truly an amazing mushroom....
