Someone told me once that May was morel month. In Ohio, it seems to be the case. We had been looking for a few weeks, and thought that we missed it, because of the strange warm weather this year. Still, we hadn't quite given up. So we went out again today after a rain.....and I stumbled upon one in a secret patch. And then a few more. We mostly found black morels. I guess they come up first for a few weeks, followed by the yellows. I hope this is true, as I'll be around for the next three weeks hunting...... bowl by Michael Simon.
