My wife and I walked and half crawled probably the best part of a half mile today through what has always been great mushroom spots and not a thing.  I'm thinking we just haven't had enough heat when we had enough water this year.  Maybe we're just too anxious :o :o :o

I have had no luck at all this year, none last year and barely nothing the year before that.  I really am not brave enough to go on property if I don't know who it belongs to.  I know this is a stretch but does anyone know of any public areas that people have found any?  I have tried numerous times at Munson and got nothing.

My daughter and I found 20 on our property last Monday. We haven't been out looking since.

We were busy out working in our garden, yard and even the woods yesterday.  I was mowing some of the walking trails that had been 'too wet' before now and decided to take a look to see if I could stumble onto a morel or two...   I darned near tripped over one of them.  I believe these are by far the biggest morels we've ever found here on our own place.  They were deeeeeelicious too :P :P :P

I found these 3 first...   they're bigger than they look in the picture.  My wife took the picture while I was outside and she was getting them ready for the fry pan. 



Once she had those soaking she wanted to go back out and look for some too.  We walked a good hour and then finally went back to our 'old faithful' morel patch and I found this one within 3 feet of where I found the very first one:



I wish there was a way to bottle that aroma and sell it...

Just think...

Now you can idea of how big the small ones were ;) ;) ;)

My nephew has been finding them for the last two weeks. First they were the small white and grays but now he's finding the orange ones. Some are the size of tennis balls. He says look under old dead elm trees or apple orchards. He found 40 one time but lately it's been 6 or 7 at a time. Today was a good humid day they should be up tomorrow with the rain tonight.

We found these four under....


drum roll please.....


one of our old apple trees :) :) :)

It's really old and the trunk is hollow and starting to split open the whole length.  Over the winter the top fell out of it so not sure how much longer it will last.  I hope there will be enough of whatever is in the ground for it to keep producing morels as long as I want to keep looking for them.

Nice, all I find in my yard is grass, grass, and grass! :(



But on the other hand we've found them literally out in the middle of our lawn....  on a sand ridge.  I've always wondered if maybe there had been an old apple tree there since we do have several in our yard near there.
