First Morels

I picked my first morels of the season today. They emerged in my yard on March 24; the asparagus popped up on the same day. I will have enough of both for a meal this evening. I'm letting the asparagus grow a little more today; before tonight's' frost. Someone actually took three of my morels which were visible from the road; yesterday. That was a first for me.

It is now time to scour the hillsides in search of the elusive fungi. Most searches result in more exercise than mushrooms, but that is a good thing. I don't know about you, but I tend to find the most morels in association with ash trees. Good Luck !!
