the morel of the story

morel hiding in pine needles

After searching high and low for morels in the forest and getting almost completely skunked, we decided to cut out the searching through the forest part and grow our own.  Along with a grow kit that Wendy ordered from fungi perfecti Bruce and I mixed up a bunch of charcoal encrusted wood, gypsum, and peat in a wheel barrow then poured it in a promising location.  With fingers crossed we will wait between 120 and 400 days to see if any of the little suckers pop up.
