My take on this is that the mild winters we have had are here to stay and morels will continue to be early. I just hope this will bring more rain than we have been seeing. What do you think??????????????

Hi All, found 10 pounds of oysters on one stump during the last warm spell. Something interesting, morels develop on the eastern slopes of the cascade mountains in Washinton state, in the spring and on the south and western slopes in the fall. They also find chanterells, hens, blewitts. Cool huh? Need to move there when retired, maybe.

Kerpudha, you are welcome.

I picked the blewits from my back yard. They reached3 1/2 inches. I sliced them up and placed them in a freezed bag and added some spring water. I then placed them in my freezer. next spring I will place this on top a compost pile and hopefully next fall I will have a new colony of blewits.
