Morel season has offically begun in Georgia!!!! (w/PICS)
    #1391372 - 03/19/03 12:43 PM (13 years, 8 months ago)

I've been busy as hell at work lately and unable to check any of my patches. Today I said fuck it and took off a little early and headed for my most faithful morel patch. Sure enough the minute I got there morels were everywhere and had been for at least 3-4 days it looks. Most are still a little on the immature side, still gray in color and the pores still have that rounded smooth appearance, they haven't fully opened yet.

Pictures coming tonight, I've been putting off buying a new camera for the past few weekends, the first morel of the year is a good enough reason for me to head to the store tongiht. Not sure what model I'm getting yet, but it'll definitely be a Sony.


I'll be back later tonight with some pics hopefully.

PS. Gumby, you down for hunt this weekend? I'm open all weekend just give me a call on the cell if you have the time.




LK,

Damn right I'm up for some morel hunting :smile:
This constant rain/drizzle we've had for the last 4 days should be good for them. I bet this storm we're having tonight will help out a good bit as well. I'm just ready for it to warm up a little bit.

I'll give you a call on your cell tomorrow afternoon and we can arrange things. :smile: :smile: :smile:

Re: What are morels [Re: LuNAtic_On_ThE_GrASp]
    #1392437 - 03/19/03 06:20 PM (13 years, 8 months ago)

Morels are mushrooms from the genus Morchella. This is a good photograph showing the typical appearance. There are also black morels. They are noted for being some of the best edible mushrooms there are. There is only one company, in Alabama, who has successfully cultivated them.

They occur in every state (I'm not sure about Hawaii, though), and fruit in spring. Don't bother asking around for people to tell you where their morel picking spots are. They're more likely to give you their life's savings.

If you go hunting for them, you need to know to avoid false morels. These are mushrooms of closely related genera to the true morels, and they can be difficult to identify accurately. The current expert on these mushrooms, Dr. Nancy Smith Weber, recommends that all false morels not be eaten. Some of them are very poisonous, and there have been many deaths due to them. Even many of the ones which are not poisonous are known to contain extremely carcinogenic compounds.

If you have a successful morel hunt, let us know. We'll be jealous.

Make sure you thoroughly cook your morels, as they cause nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea if eaten raw or undercooked.

If you want more information, search the internet or buy a book. There's tons of information out there.

Happy mushrooming!

I couldn't make a decision on a camera last night, I was looking at the cybershot P9 and the s-85 again. I decided to go with the same model I had before, the s-85, it was a nice camera and took some great pics, that p9 is just too small for me.

I work on a river pumping sand for our family buisness, with all that rain we were hit with last night, the river is out of the banks and flooding our roads. I can't haul any sand today with the river on the road, so I'm taking the day off. I'm headed out to get the camera in just a few, and will spend the rest of the day checking my other morel patches and search for new ones.

I will have a few pics up today, its just gonna be a while yet...



LK,

Lets see if this works, I'm using a crappy free image hosting web site, so my size limit is a lousy 120k, but its better than nothing.

FUCK IT, the pics were here, now they're gone, the website hosting says theres no problem linking my picture to other boards, that the link won't break, and what happens, the pictures show up for a while and then they disappear.


If anyone thinks they can figure it out, go for it, my comp is a pile a shit and I'm fed up for the night.
