I am curious how many morels you have been finding. My morel season isn't going so well. I was out on april 25th and today looking for morels. I am starting to wonder whether I missed the morels. Last year I piked most of my morels around may 1st and 2nd. It's already the 4th and I haven't found one yet. I have noticed that the vegetation seems to be behind by a few weeks as last year I had to sort through vegetation to find the morels. This year I can see all the way to the ground. Also the area that I found the mushrooms in was flooded very recently and the logs that I find the mushrooms near were washed away.
been doing real good here in southwest pa for a couple weeks now. even found some oysters as a bonus. heading to Erie this weekend and i'm hoping to find some there also as we did last year at this time.
I have found a total of 8 morels this year on my property in Adams Co. My neighbor found 16 POUNDS last week. My problem is... inconsiderate people who continue to come onto my CLEARLY POSTED property while I'm not there and STEAL MY MORELS and leave empty beer cans. My neighbor has caught them IN MY YARD more than once this year and told them to leave. If I catch them I'm calling the state police and filing defiant trespass charges.
If you can't tell, I'm a little PO'd at the moment. I had 1 morel meal last year and ZERO this year.
