Every year around this time, a certain segment of people keep their eyes peeled and jump for joy when they see the first one towering out of the ground. The site signals the start of morel mushroom season!
I got the prize in our family this year, plucking the first morel from the ground Saturday morning. Of course, that made productivity on other tasks plummet as hubby kept racing back to various spots several times over the course of the weekend, trying to find more! The fun only lasts a week or so before the show is over and we wait until next spring to hunt again. Of course, since hubby doesn't like mushrooms, I reap the tasty rewards - a wonderful morel mushroom omelt was my lunch today!
Do you go on the prowl for morels? Any happy hunting tips you'd like to share!
