My experience has never shown them to grow if left alone. I have picked a few that the wrinkles have been tight, and those may have expanded if left alone, but normally, what you see is what you get.

I have left them also but never saw any added growth. I do believe the deer also like to munch on them.

I thought it was still a bit early but I may need to check a few spots tomorrow for some with a good steak on the grill.

Boy would my wife be happy if I would find a nice bunch to saute.

Found a couple really small ones , but still just a bit early yet. Tomorrow's sunshine will help a little. The dang rabbit's love them just as much as the deer do. I had a few growing in the yard last year, only to look around and discover that little varmits liked munching on them. Rabbit stew with shrooms anyone?

The morels I found were in Blue Earth county (sorry thats all I can say about the location). I did snap a few pics with a friends phone but could not find my power cord to my scanner/printer to upload. I went scouting a few local parks today and only found one very small gray after 4 hours of looking. I went back to the few small ones I found yestarday and they did not look much bigger. Like a few of you stated before I think either rabbits or deer got to a few, I seen a few that were missing the caps and some were missing parts of the caps. I also found a deer leg that was fairly fresh and was stripped clean to the bone.....BT

Because Mille-Lacs was already taken...???

Which by the by, the same shrubs over there are known as Mille-Lie-Lacs...

Besides, Truth-lacs just doesn't have the same ring...

You know what they say...when the Lilac leaves are as big as a Rats ear...

Hey Papa... Don't knock it 'til you try it! Morels with roast rabbit are AWESOME!!! It's one of the fall crock-pot recipes we do here. Besides, there's nothing like a "marinade on the hoof" grin Phred52

I have let a few sit a day or so that did get bigger when first found. Also not sure how much the Deer like them as there is a good size Deer trail right through the area I found them in with shrooms on both sides, and none were touched? At least I hope they don't like them, as much as I do! grin Going out tonight to check!

    • When you rip up the floor, do you only need  replace the foam if it's wet? Also am I going to have to take out the consoles and windshield. I'm assuming I'll have to....Thinking of starting the project in the next month or so.
    • Not going to worry about much until later in the season, we know they can't stay crazy hot forever and slumps will happen, just as long as they are too long I will be happy. I just want them playing really well down the stretch.

    • I've said for years that he needs to wear a helmet, but it was for entirely different reasons.
    • I think that is talking about painkillers etc.      Likely he is taking stuff like statins and blood pressure meds as a minimum.  And he had some depression issues, as I recall, so perhaps something for that.     I saw a thing on TV that said it could have been a vasovagal syncope.  Basically you pass out due to stress.
