More morel

December 6, 2010

The morel mushroom grew a bit in the 24 hours after the post and pictures here

(Ahem…. I’ll go ahead and make the joke since you filthy minded blog readers are already thinking it: Is that a morel in your pocket or are you just happy to see me. There, are you satisfied? Aren’t you ashamed of yourselves?) 😉

At this point it looked pretty close to the pictures of harvested morels I had found on the web, but I left it in the ground. The wet green slime had mostly dried to a darker and slightly less disgusting color and texture.

Theoretically it has now spored out and next year I may have the opportunity to be adventurous and harvest one or two. More likely, I’ll just post another picture or two and talk about harvesting them. I’m probably not the guy to eat wild fungus from my own backyard.

(Due to cold, rain, dark and slackness there were no subsequent pictures of this; it stayed the same size and the top bleached out. Easy come easy go….) .

      There is no humor like sophomoric humor. 😉
