The Hunt for Morels

Okay, I admit it. I was excited about the morels. We have gone mushroom hunting for 4-5 evenings in a row. We have not found one. Our neighbors, on the other hand, said they found 100. Perhaps it's the way our land faces--we don't have much East-facing hills. Or, perhaps, our mushrooms are late bloomers.

But it's good exercise and the dog loves to tag along with us. We're learning more about our property and about how much trash people throw out.

We're still holding out hope that we will find a plethora of these mycological wonders in the near future.

Seems like it has been too dry for the morels to flourish in our area this year. I may go to the woods on Sunday, and I'll poke around for them then. Sorry about your disappointment.
