    Went looking for new ground today and got lucky and bumped into a motherlode, 77 morels under a dead Elm. 123 Total. The last three hours of walking I got skunked. Check out these pics. 0507171339.jpg image(5).jpg image(4).jpg image(3).jpg

    Found pg 5 today, very small so I left them. Question for Geo, Hobble...I've watched numerous videos on Verpa vs Half free morels. By all accounts these are half free but I want to make sure. Stem totally hollow and cap attached halfway up. Pics attached IMG_5435.JPG IMG_5427.JPG IMG_5428.JPG IMG_5430.JPG IMG_5431.JPG

    Also, these are very brittle and fall apart very easily.

    Hotdog I'd say there half's I see no spiderwebing in them. Geo has a link on here that shows them really good. But don't take my opinion only. let Geo confirm he's way better at it then myself.
    Barnical nice find most of mine r like that or a little bigger need warmer weather.

    Hobble...That's what I'm thinking. I have found verpa's and they look nothing like these.

    What is the timing like compared to last year for you guys. I found most of mine in the middle of the month last year 12-18 of may. A lot of them were a bit past so I thought I'd go check a spot yesterday hoping to catch them a bit fresher, but there was just a couple and they were just popping out of the ground. I am planning on trying to go a bit farther south tomorrow and try to find some warmer ground maybe.

    Geo, do you harvest them? There must be over a hundred in this new location.

    You guys are killing me. I thought I had a few weeks to go with all this crappy cool weather, but I guess it's time to take time off from work and head out to the old orchard with the machete!

    I generally don't bother with them but if I didn't have such luck with the Yellows I might hold a different point of view.

    For me the timing seems to be around the same. Latitude and altitude matter. But even within those constraints there are micro-climates that upset the timing.
