I’m not sure anymore what a “normal” spring is supposed to be like, but this spring doesn’t feel right. We have had below average temperatures and lots of rain. Our coveted morel mushrooms haven’t been happy with the weather either. Last year we were DONE harvesting mushrooms by the first week in May. This year our first, scarce sighting didn’t arrive until May 21st.
The bounty shown in the picture was found on May 24th under 1 lucky tree. Other than that…nada. I will search again today with optimistic energy, but my pessimistic side reminds me that yesterday’s temps weren’t ideal. We will see.
