I went morel hunting over the weekend, and not only did I NOT find morels, I saw very few mushrooms at all. I found a few clumps of inky caps, and some tiny, tiny dryad saddles. I thought with the weather we've had, there would be mushrooms everywhere, but nope, very, very few.
These are the dryad saddles. Sorry about the focus, but you can see by comparison with my thumb how small they are. These mushrooms are usually the size of dinner plates this time of the year.
Seven more days of vacation. We'll try again later.
HOORAY!!! I finally found some morels! Not only did I find some, I found a whole freakin' smurf village of 'em! Unfortunately they were a bit old, and I was only able to get six edible specimens. No matter, I made a note of the location, and no, I'm NOT telling!
