    That's a lot of mushrooms. But I could eat that many.

    It was a nice mess. Worked out great, I was planning on going to my folks for the day, and they're of an age where mushroom hunting would be a great ordeal, if they even had a place to go. They were thrilled to have them. I'm blessed with a very productive little patch. Don't know why they grow so well there, but I'm not going to argue!

    Hey, whistlepig, just noticed your location line. My wife's folks are all from Darke county, just north of you. BIL is an attorney in Greenville.

    Take a bag of morels to someone and you will have a friend for life. We live about 40 miles south of Greenville. Sometimes I go to Winner's Meats in Greenville. They have the worlds best summer sausage there.

    I'm just about to head up into the mountains here in Washington state to hunt morels, quite tastey.

    The rule that works for us in south central Iowa is when oak trees have leaves size of mouse ear the morels will be growing. I think the start of the season is very close.

    Saw them in the local grocery @35$/lb. last week. Haven't seen any on our land. It's supposed to be 85 deg. the next couple days and then back to low 50's for highs. We've had so much rain this April, I have no idea if we'll have morrels this year.

    I think the season in IL is about the same as in IA. Normal season is second half of April first half of May but it might be later this year due to low temperatures few weeks ago. I am betting on second week in May.

    Ya'll are lucky! I grew up in IA, but have been away for years and haven't had any morels in about as long! I would so LOVE to have some again! maybe some time I can go home on leave when they are growing and see if my kids would go hunting them with me, I know I loved hunting them with my dad!

    I would look here BUT there are too many pines around here to even try!
