Many people have a “bucket list” of things they want to do. One of the silly ones I had, was to find morel mushrooms in the wild and get some pictures. Yes, I would like to taste them also, but finding them myself was something I have been trying to do for years!
Today, I went out with my sister and she showed me how to locate them. Lauri pointed out the first one and then I discovered a nice one! Adrian and Megan found a few each, but they were still very small, so we left them for a few days. My sister will check on them later.
Now, I want to go explore a few places that I have heard the mushrooms can be found. I had so much fun locating these (more fun than finding Easter Eggs 🙂 ) and spending time with my sister, kids and nephew and listening to everyone excited each time they found a mushroom . When they started saying “hush, or poachers with come”, they only got louder and sillier.
The only negative? Discovering at least three ticks after our hunt.
