Morels in the Orchard!

I’ve been looking forward to morel season this year and hoping to get some time to go hiking in the hills where I think there would be a good chance to find them… I certainly didn’t expect to find them in the hugelkultur beds!

As we were finishing up the days work in the garden/orchard, I decided to take a look at the buds swelling on the pakistan mulberry. I stopped in my tracks when I saw the size of the morel at the base of the tree, growing amidst the rye and wood chips:

Another dozen or two of it’s friends were hanging out within ~50′ up and down the berm. This section gets quite a bit of afternoon shade from a hundred plus year old oak. There is also a lot of water runnoff in to the bed from up the slope. Whatever works, the morels are happy…
