Every year about this time lots of people that I know get a kind of crazy sparkle in their eye.
It's mushroom hunting time.
I like to hunt for mushrooms.
But I've only done it about 4 times in my life.
I've only found about 4 mushrooms.
Once I found one in the flower bed at my parent's house. Total fluke.
I didn't count that experience in the above statistics.
After work yesterday Mike headed over to mow the grass for his parents. Soon after he left I got a message from him on my phone. The pics that he sent had me gaping, open-mouthed with surprise.
He was just mowing along, not paying a lot of attention, when he saw these! Look at all those morels!
The reason I was so surprised is that his parents live right smack dab in the middle of town. I never would have thought they would have a ripe harvest field of morels in their backyard!
I'd say it is definitely a bumper crop year!
And I can make that assessment because I'm such an
experienced expert in the field of mushroom hunting...
This one is the granddaddy of the lot. He's a big 'un.
Mike's daddy was squealing with delight. He knows he's in for some good eatin'!
Anybody else been 'shroom hunting? Any great big finds?
