Does anyone have any indicators for Morels (preferably M. esculenta)
in Central Mass. area. Time range? What else is blooming or doing at
morel time? eco-niche types?
Also, I _still_ have some dried M. esculenta from several years ago.
This is perhaps a far fetched idea, but I want to try to grow morels.
I have prepared what I think will be a good site (sun/pt shade;
grassy-ish; limey-ashy sweet;) Assuming there might be some spores left
on the samples I have, does anyone know how I might go about trying to
propagate? Does the mycelium need wood? I am -patient- and willing to
read material to figure this out.
To anyone who responds with useful info, I will provide you with a very
good recipe for Cream of Morel Soup (richly flavorful).
Also: Any mycological groups in Central Mass Area? Any natural history
people? (flora, fauna, geol., bird watchers, etc.)
