    Very nice rjmichna! Get back Saturday. Sunday they are calling for a washout. Next week some sun finally will make it all come together. Nice job. Get back safely.

    You know it redfred! Best things ever. Cuts everything! Including that beautiful morel in your photo! I bring knives as well but there just to litter the woods. Like my latest one on Wednesday! The clippers never leave my hand. Good job man.

    Found 36 small grays after work today. Saw many others. Next week is looking good. Saw some small lilac buds today. Should be blooming soon. I am heading to NY tomorrow...with a couple Ct. stops as well. Good luck all.

    Hello. Found these 2 guys growing alongside my cabin in Branford just this morning. As of 2 hours ago, I had no idea what one of these guys were. Hopefully I did not pick them too early?

    Very nice Tom B ! Look perfect to me. Look for more around where you found these. Get down low and scan the area. You may be surprised to see more. Good luck.

    Thank you! I did indeed search around a little bit more and found one more. A tad bigger as well, all currently soaking in a little salt water. More searching tomorrow.

    I found 6 Half-Free’s in the rain today that were salvageable. This was in the western part of CT. No pictures... I ate ‘em too fast.

    Nice job rjmichna. Glad you got out there. I was busy. Wish I was in the woods too! Next 2 days with possible sun? What the heck is that!? But if it's true...fingers crossed here...we should be on em pretty good by the weekend. Good luck. I have many days off real soon. Fishing or shroomin? Love this time of year!

    New member here - I hit the jackpot this morning with these beauties in my front yard. Easy foraging for sure. Next to an old crabapple tree with tulips in bloom underneath and lots of old leaves and undergrowth (late doing my spring cleanup this year).

    Decided I'd better harvest them before the lawn service comes - Are they supposed to be this big?? (I'm a newbie)..

    In spite of my amateur foraging status I decided to live dangerously and cook them up - and am I glad I did!! Delicious and now I’m hunting for more!
