Great find hotdog! Congrats!
Hobler, Unbelievable!!! You can look and look but you will never know where they are going to pop up. Congrats!
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.
That is one hell of a find geo.
Nice ones hotdog.
Went in my barn yard with my family we found a few more good ones. But all together we found about 75 to a 100 more little ones. Some small ones were broke off n my 4 yr old said they were perfect size for her. Lol
Unbelievable find Geo!!
Hobblesharing..yep, def keep that tree!
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
Also, these are very brittle and fall apart very easily.
I am finding the same little guys at Saratoga and Schenectady county
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.
my daughter wanted to show of here baby morels. My future shroomer.
Yes they look like half frees, I've bumped into a dozen or so today.
What a lovely girl! Your a lucky dad! Enjoy her, they grow up too fast.
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.
Bigfish I found mine starting on the 17th last yr but I was a little off. Another guy from here started on the 7th. I'm finding alot of small ones hopefully we get warmer weather
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.
