The mushrooms were probably especially on my mind because of something that happened earlier last evening. I came home to find the neighbor children working in my yard. They are part of a wonderful homeschooling family down the street that I've become close to. They watch my home and cats while I am away. And, I have paid them to do small odd jobs around the house so all of the kids can have a little bit of spending money at the dollar store. Well, they were raking the sweet gum balls out of my yard before I got home from the store... and what do you know?!? They found 3 morel mushrooms in my yard. They took them home to share with the family - which was ok by me. But, I had them show me exactly where they found them so I could keep an eye on that exact spot.
It would be wooondeeeeeerfuuuuul to have my own mushroom patch in the back yard. I need to stop writing about these because my mouth is watering just thiking about them. I'll keep you posted on my mushroomin' finds throughout the spring. Do you like fried morel mushrooms?
