You lucky shroomer. Snow is predicted here next week, so I'll have to be content with store-bought portabellas for a while.

I checked some of the morel freak websites and people reported collecting them in TN about a week ago; it looks like your season is under way. I'm probably almost 600 miles to your north, so I still have a few weeks to go.

Just today I saw dehydrated morels in the store for $20 an ounce (maybe it was only 1/2 ounce, I don't remember). Once reconstituted they may have amounted to 4 or 5 ounces, and I was tempted to buy them, but had second thoughts. I can wait!

Found 7 today...about two days old. Dark cones. Didn't pick but will go back Sunday to see what the patch yields. It's been freezing here in AM but temps have been hitting 50+ in afternoons. I've found them as early as March 1. When overnight temps perk up to mid-30's I'll be in business.

You scoured 20 acres for 7 morels? You have got it bad. Once you find one it's difficult to stop. You keep thinking if you take a few more steps you might hit the mother lode!

A friend of mine who's a chef helped me. I try to stay on top the very first appearance. Been keeping a log for a while now. What's interesting is that we've had only a handful of days where temps reached 45-50 degrees. They grow even in cold temps here...strange.

Well the season is here...for all the newbies to foraging a tip—be sure that when you are into the forage that you look in small spaces. The morel can grow to be somewhat large, however that is the exception rather than the rule. So far I'm getting 2-3 inch morels and was reminded of how freaking elusive those bastards are. I'll be posting some pics soon!

        Been keeping a detailed log over the years. Pay attention to the "defrosting" phase. April and May offer fine Morels. The best are late March dark caps. Excellent with Fettuccine Alfredo

        I have foraged for ginseng for a season. LOTTA work where I live. The roots just spread everywhere. Kinda fun, like morel hunting. The bug gets on you and you just start looking for it everywhere.

        There is or was a show about people trespassing on private property just to steal the stuff and getting paid cash for it.
