Around here these morels are scarcer than hen's teeth and if you do get lucky enough to sell a few lbs [$25lb] you don't mention where you live. These are the only mushrooms I know so they are the only fungi I pick!

I noticed that Nirvana was selling for $25 a pound when she last posted.
They are upwards of $40 now with shipping and all - and its mid season out west.
In a couple months they'll be $60-$70 per.

Morel season has been AWFUL for me the last couple years. I haven't even gotten more than a dozen total.
Gonna head out again today and see what I can find.

Now! We are actually a little late, but I think I'm as confused as the morels this year with the weather and all. At least I hope I am.

"Hunting the Mighty Morel Mushroom

The "mushroom walk" is a low, Groucho Marx-like walk that gets the mushroom hunter closer to the ground. Crouch down and look 10 to 20 feet ahead not around your feet and look for the (tiny) Christmas-tree shapes in the distance. Keep moving and investigate the shapes. You'll cover more ground and find more morels.
It's a fallacy that pulling a mushroom out by its roots will prevent another from growing there next year. The "root" system that brings the mushroom to the surface is a one-time, one-way system. It deteriorates through winter and spring thaw, and is replaced each year. Cut or clip the morels at the base to keep them clean.
Mushroom hunters never tell where their favorite spots are. Don't bother asking."

Morels: In my neck of the woods we look near the base of a tree on a hillside, on the downhill side. Therefore, we usually walk up hill when hunting morels.

I don't think I've been in the woods this year. At all.

Are there a lot of uphill gardeners, then? I guess it might be easier in KY?
