These were just in front of our house.





These were found in the woods and are drying out ready for cleaning and cooking.

I'm jealous, too. Anyone from the Pacific Northwest find any morels yet? (I haven't. )

Sounds good, my favorite recipe is morels with asparagus. I started finding black morels about a week ago in a two- year old burn in the Cascades. But the harvest was nothing  like last year! Everything is happening about 2 weeks later normal this year in the Northwest because of the cold, dark,  wet spring weather. I'm looking forward to hunting morels next week in a place that burned last summer, as well as under the cottonwood trees.

Just gloating that I found some morel mushrooms.  Usually when trying to find morels, I end up walking right past them while the people behind me find the bounty.  For the first time in my life it was the other way around.  Brian Kerkvliet of inspiration farm in Bellingham, Washington walked right past these morels and I spotted them!

Those are awesome Paul!  I saw all the dandelions too, and other good weeds, you could harvest them all at once, right?   Well, now I know I have to be this observant too, this type of thing can happen to me too, and it is a matter of tuning into the fungi energy I guess!
 
Switching from electric heat to a rocket mass heater reduces your carbon footprint as much as parking 7 cars. Tiny ad:
A rocket mass heater heats your home with one tenth the wood of a conventional wood stove
