Morels are here - are you ready?

Do you like to mushroom hunt?  If you are like me, you have been checking those wood lines with all those rainy and sunny days we have been having.  This week I found my first morel....actually we ended up finding about 90 thumb size greys.  Dinnertime meant spaghetti and fried mushrooms (three skillets full).  Good eating.  Not sure what to pick?  Remember, your local library has several books about mushrooms and their identification.  Ask for "Mushrooms and other fungi of North America" by Roger Phillips c2010 or "Good mushroom bad mushroom: who's who, where to find them, and how to enjoy them safely" by John Plischke c2011.  Happy Hunting!
