This morning we had an unexpected rain shower that lasted about 3 hours. It was a nice soaking rain. After noon the sun came out and it warmed up to 84 degrees. The hot humid afternoon also brought out the first morel mushrooms on our farm. For two days I've been looking for them in our hot spot where we always find them. Finally, today we found 32. They were rather small, but at least they were the nice golden ones. I brought them into the house and soaked them, rinsed them and we had our first mushroom fry. Absolutely delicious. The temperatures are supposed to be hot again tomorrow, I fully expect more morels to pop up. I will be out there searching again.
