A Fungi Weekend


For those in the Northeast of this country that don't know, this is morel season.

Foraging
Both last weekend and this weekend, Thaddeus and I went out in search of our elusive favorite mushroom, the morel.

After hours of trudging through the woods Northeast of here, we were able to find a combined total of exactly two morels.



Extremely disappointing. I'm hoping Thaddeus' searches this week will yield a better crop.

Current Knitting
I did some additional work this weekend on the bulky Lavold-like pullover.



This is almost up to the point of reducing for the sleeve opening, so I'm close to finishing the front of this sweater. I won't be working on it this week, since it's easier to transport the colorblock cardigan sleeve I've not been working on.

Geez, when I first glanced at that picture, I thought they were uncircumcised peni instead of propinki.

Missed you at Maryland.

Don't feel bad we have found any morels yet either. I have a decent bed of them on my property.

Note Marie does not leave her address hum? I am wondering if you dry these and if so it increases the flovour ?

Carol I won't say I've that many in "person" so to speak but I think you'd need a doctor if your knob looked like that ...a long bath at the least !

Huh. You're out looking for morels. About 3 weeks before there'll be any around here. Morels in cream sauce with dill....the best part of spring.

Doesn't look appetizing but maybe it is (the morel mushroom). As for me, I prefer my mushrooms to come from Kroger's! :)

Anon, that's cause you have never tasted the real thing. It's like the difference between a tomato from the grocery, and one you just picked off the vine.

I wonder if we'll get any here (No. WI) since it's been so dry. I think season is still two weeks off, anyway.

If you guys were up in Andover, I'll bitch-slap ya for not stopping by to say hello. I'm not all that far from your morel-hunting fields, ya know. Sure, morel hunting was just an excuse to go to Hotdog Johnny's, wasn't it?

As a parent of a young boy, I do NOT think the man should get the death penalty for soliciting sex with a minor. That he didn't even actually have sex with the minor stuns me even more. Yes, he committed a crime, but not one worthy of the death penalty (I'm not even sure there is a crime truly worthy of the death penalty but if there ever were, it would NOT be this!).

One could certainly point to the cases of female teachers having sex with their male students to support your point. These teachers get jail time and eventually get out of jail.

This is truly depressing.
