General Information: Finally, my first morels of this year.. Found just 1 (very small)near my main place. Will have to wait about 10 days for some better results there. On my way back I noticed a big, dead elm. Bingo!! Over 20 black morels in 40 square meters. I left a few old "reproducers". Hope this will be my good location for the next few years. Trilliums and trout lilys just started to bloom. Lilacs are about 2 weeks old before blooming. Now I'm officially joining the morel hunt, full steam ahead.

General Information: With the heat in the high 80?s, leaves crackling with every step, your would elect to stay home watching an episode of Games of thrones, or a replay of the 2014 Olympics finals. But do believe me, it was another foray from the heavens. Not just for Morels, but for one of the prettiest and great specimen of Chaga, so fresh and pristine dark black scabs, you feel you need surgeon with an operating table and all the nurses in the world to extract and remove every bit of it. As far as the Morels find, they were large and small. The large were all blond ?Marchella Esculenta? of 7-10? long and 2-3? on the max diameter. The smaller specimens were Gray and Blond around 4-6? long and we stopped the count on that. Again, many thanks to our Friend John for great hunt and a day full of scenery with Black, copperhead and huge common garter snakes. Only the copperhead snake would abandon its warm rock seat and slip in the creek when sees your shadow across three yard terrain.

General Information: Searched same area on May 8th and found nothing; the first section contained mostly yellows and the second section had mostly grays. The most unusual thing this year, with both the yellows and grays was that only a few were single mushrooms on a stem; the majority had two or three heads on a single stem. I do not know what that means, but it was a bonus this year!

General Information: 5/9/2014. six young greys found under a dying elm on a west facing hardwoods hillside. left them all to grow. I am sure there are more hiding under the leaf litter. to my knowledge this is the third report from VT this spring.
