Last Tuesday I found my first ever morel! It was only about an inch tall, so I dutifully left it alone. Now, after checking in daily, I've observed a little patch of about 15 or so of them, with the biggest being about the size of my thumb. Here's what I need to know: How do I know when to harvest them? I feel like I'll know when I'm too late, but how will I know when they're just right for picking? Can I expect them to get as big as most of the pics I've seen? Or is they're a chance they are just small? Help! I'd sure hate for them to get old on me, and I certainly don't want the critters to get them all either. I would appreciate any advice!
