    Morels are up!

    Finally found some morels!

    I have permission on private property and for the last few years someone else is sneaking in ahead of me. So now I take them smaller than I used to. If I leave them to get bigger the "other guy" gets them.

    I've seen those in the woods before. They always kind of weirded me out. I do like mushrooms though. The kind that the "experts" decide are edible. That being said I'll eat almost any type of seafood or shellfish. Cooked or raw.

    It's finally warm enough here but it's been way too dry. We got a little rain this morning, maybe just enough to get them to pop. I'm allergic to mushrooms but I still get out every year to hunt them. The ginseng plants just came up this week too!

    I've never hunted ginseng. I thought they're in China I don't know if they're in MI ? Pictures?

    I believe ginseng will grow in MI but the conditions need to be perfect. I think the US is the second largest producer, Korea being first. Most if it goes to China. I've been looking for years and just found my first one last year while walking the dog, 30 yards from my back door! It just came up again this week, as of yesterday it wasn't completely unfurled yet.
    About 5 years ago the morels were popping up in my lawn. The largest one I've found was the size of a beer can, no kidding. I haven't seen any for years. I think tomorrow will be the day! It looks like you found quite a few. I've often wondered if they will get bigger if I leave them another day, but with the deer population around here I don't take a chance.

    They come and gone here in Tn. Can't tell you how they taste but I can tell you they are good. We always mix them in with eggs. Soak'em in salt water over night. Then clean'em and slice them to the size you want and fry'em and just before they're done put eggs in with them and scramble the eggs with them till done. Season to taste and you have a great breakfast. We didn't get as much this year. Will have to find a different place to look for them.
