The last time I had eaten morels was when I was in elementary school -- that was a long time ago! I found that they are still as fantastic as I remember, and my son loves them too!
Too bad they are so hard to find. Although I looked hard on the rest of the walk, I only came back with the one. Oh, well.
But there is hope!!
Yesterday, I took a quick peak around the garden to see what was blooming before heading to work, and stumbled upon this monster!!
It was growing in my creeping phlox. I have never seen a morel this large in my life. Our neighbor's son collects them and joked that he would love to find one as big as our concrete statues. This one isn't that much smaller!
Too bad it was past it's prime by the time I found it. It would have made a whole meal. But, hopefully, it will do what it was designed to do and make more.
