The Mother Lode of Morels!
Went morel mushroom hunting Saturday (can’t say where - you know the rules!) and boy did we hit pay dirt.
We got lucky and found some right away but then spent the next 1 - 2 hours searching and found just a few more. But then - just as we were heading back to our car, there it was - the mother lode of morels! We collected more than 60 of them in an area of about 20 feet by 20 feet and most were in really good condition.
We ended the day with about 80, which is more than we had hoped for. We gave some away and plan to eat the rest (along with asparagus fresh from our garden!) with some neighbors.
Can’t think of a better way to end a Mother’s Day weekend!
