thats amazing! And so early? My brother (who knows almost nothing about mushrooms mentioned he thought he found a morel in N. San Antonio this weekend while golfing. He said about 6/7 inches tall and like honeycomb and brain appearance on top. He tossed it aside and don’t carry cause the group moved on to the next hole!!! Didn’t think to take a picture and just now texted asking if they grew that far South 🤦‍♀️ This makes me wonder if that’s exactly what he found…but probably a stinkhorn.

Check out the under growth in the woods unless plants in the woods down there only grow knee high im calling bs thats a pic from the spring time. Not to mention the fact that the trees arent starting to turn in the pic. Anyone from texas able to give a ruff estimate of the time your trees down there start to changs color and loose their leaves.

Totally could be a recent picture. I live in the same area, and we just had our first freeze this last weekend. Also, none of the trees in the picture change colors at all (most of the leaves you can see are escarpment oaks, which are evergreen) except the one that's either a soapberry or chinese pistache. It looks to me like it HAS changed color in the pic, and looks just about right for this time of the year. Finally, this is in a yard and the undergrowth are domestic plants commonly used around here. That's as big as they get.

I'm not saying these are or arent current, but nothing in the photos says they can't be.

The grass is one of the Saint Augustine types and shows quite a bit of "older" summer growth, ( brown blades) not new growth. In SC this type of grass begins to go dormant for the winter in mid to late October and it's very likley to be later in Gulf Coast states.

Apparently fall down there looks alot different than up here.
It's looking like it'll be shorts weather this Xmas. Yesterday's high was 80F (which is, to be fair, a new record). The only thing predictable about Texas weather is that it'll be weird.

Are there any public lands to find Morels? I would love to find them closer to home. I travel to northern Indiana every year.
