We buy and eat lots of the Nameko 'shrooms. A must try in my opinion.

I have looked at my best spots, alway find some!. But I think the ground is to dry. We need Rain to make our little friends Morel's to pop up.

I just got 6 morels in Lawrence this afternoon. Not as many as I usually find in my sweet spot. I'd say that the next few days should be producing well.

Nobody is going to take you to their hot spot morel patch because next year you will be there first with two or three of your friends. There is a secret code between morel hunters, don't tell any one where you found them. ;o}

Nothing yet. I'm not looking again until Tuesday. Rain would be good, yes. May apples are popping, hound's tooth violets & dutchman's breeches are blooming. Haven't seen any timber rattlers yet, either. Still have a trail cam out looking for a mountain lion. Nothing. The bucks' new racks became evident about two weeks ago.
