Shroom kid: Last I heard Weed had gone off for the kings and the price was down. My experience this year is that everything goes quickly and is gone as quickly. Very spotty and ephemeral. Would like to know if anything is "normal" this year, because I have found both morels and boletes to be acting rather strangely. Some of this must have to do with the water table and rain patterns. Anybody notice that things are rather different out there (in addition to enormous numbers of famished crews).

Hello folks, is anyone picking spring kings, or anything like them? are you selling them too? don't worry, I don't need to know where you are, just curious to see if there is a stream there or not, for pickers at this time of year, between morels and the fall stuff. how about oysters - Pleurotus? cheers. full buckets!

Slpry jack, you hit the nail right on! "THE EXPERIENCE OF DISCOVERY" What a thing to say! Still people ask...where are the mushrooms? Well, go look in the likely spots and feel good about finding your treasures. Spacecake, counting your chickens already I see, good luck on that one, you must not know that shrooms have a mind of their own, they may come or not come, it may rain, it may not, either way good luck!

OK it is not an unrelated site it is just reverting to the home page even though the link is for an interior link titled, Could Bigfoot be Cain? Now I assume that the rider was on one of them large Missouri riding mules which by my calculations would make the hairy man about 10 feet tall. So where are all the morels hiding, I won't tell because then some folks would miss out on the experience of discovery.

ghostman52; Interesting and good luck with that documentary. When doing a Google search I came up with this report that allegedly occurred in Tennessee, September 1835. This was long before there was one known as Bigfoot in the early 1920’s, so it is doubtful that Patten was influenced by someone’s story of such. http://gerald.edwards-usa.net/Bigfoot%20Or%20Cain.pdf The big man Patten encountered walked beside him as he rode on his mule for about two miles and stood as tall as the riders shoulder. Now if this is the real Big Foot then you do not need to worry about him getting killed but you may need to worry about him getting upset with you and the USFS for bringing too much attention to his current stomping grounds. Good Luck & full buckets.

Hey thetwin, why don't you sell what you pick on craigslist, or kijiji, or usedeverywhere.com (the everywhere is usully the name of your town/city, or the larger one closest to you). You'll do better $ that way. or phone around to your local restau's, and/ or start talking to chefs and bakers in the area. maybe advertize with the local Slow Food people. google search any of this to see if it's relevant to you. And hey EI, the mushrooms themselves won;t do anything to the plants. the mycelium won't be specially good for root crops in particular, but probably no big deal. Many potting soils have some kind of mycorhyzal component in them now (often an oyster mushroom species, of some kind, possibly combined with one or two others, incidentally), as it makes the nutrients more assimilable for the plants. She should definitely dig into the soil where the shrooms are coming up and see if there is any significant white or grey mycelium. If so, then it might be good for her to dig it out and replace with fresh soil. good luck!

Hi fungy fundis I have a grower question for you knowledgeable folk out there from a customer: She bought some soil for their veggie garden and have had a bunch of mushrooms sprout up ever since! Guy said that sometimes things just blow into the soil and it happens every once and awhile. Question is: If these mushrooms are of the poisonous variety, will these affect her veggies that are growing in the same soil in a negative way? Thanks for your help.

I am doing research for a documentry on mushroom picking and bigfoot sightings by mushroom pickers. The forestry service refuses to acknowledge the existence of this being, unless there are other mushroom pickers like myself that has had encounters with this creature. I had the honor of seeing him 3 times now and all the times I was way up in the mountains mushroom picking when I did. I am really looking for someone who picks around the Powers, Oregon area and SRU lake, formerly Squaw lake. There has been reports that there may be someone hired to take care of a problem (wild animal) there, and I want to preserve it. If anyone has ever had any bad encounters as in aggressive behavior, I need those also to have both sides of the story. You will be compensated if you are in the documentry as well as telling your story in the filming of this. I do not want Finding Bigfoot trash stories or just noises you heard, I need good facts to stop the forestry service from doing a great injustice. This is not a joke and if you do not believe, I do not need your comments about being crazy or whatever. Please e-mail me at ghostman52@comcast.net with your story and a way to contact you. Thanks to all u guys, and happy hunting in the morel country. Be safe!

Matsimama.... I could not agree with you more... that applies to all pickers, not just those south of 49..... The crap I have seen come into some stations, and the expectations of those bringing in the undersize, dirty, or over done shrooms and expecting to get BIG dollars. I do think some of the blame does lie with (some) buyers, that don't educate the new pickers. In fact I would go as far as to say some buyers are just as greedy as the same pickers. Maybe we should lay some blame on our society as well. It seems to be expected now days that you can get high reward without doing anything..... Pride is the right word, Sadly a lot of people done know the meaning...... BTW.... the same can be said for those that leave their garbage in the bush.... same mind set.

Morel Farmer: As far as the US & Canadian crops go, I find, as with boletes the "crew pick" mentality is what affects the product most. Scandanavians think of their product with pride, as a semi-cultivated thing. Crews in the U.S. might as well be picking apples or lettuce--they believe they should be paid for anything, they throw in the bucket, dirt and all. I have seen it happen in Sisters with boletes. Picking was a fine art with true professionals about 15 years ago. Now this type of picking has been sacrificed to the greed mentality. I saw it in Burns--with crews scooping up 1/4 inch morels and dirt into large washtubs. Americans--if you are such--or are trying to be such--get your pride back!

Hello, Morel farmer sorry about not responding to your post been busy with 2 little ones. As far as the gorge went it was a bit slow but I purposely avoided very good spots with way too many TICKS. I did get a few good meals though. I have been wanting to hunt the eastern cascades but that might not happen :( Good luck on your studies!

kamloops picker; be sure to look in the grass... ... ... shroomkid; I was wearing out at least one new pair of hiking boots as well as a set of tires each year. Good thing I did all that hiking back-in-the-day because my body and schedule is not conducive to doing much more research currently. The “lake effect” creates a micro clime that is good for any fungi in season, especially in a year when other areas are a bit dried out. Sometimes the naturals do come back in the year following the burn, especially if the area historically was a good patch; often it takes six or so years before the natural crop is evident. Edges of burns are a good thing to watch and learn from. I do find many types of boletus in old burns and some end up dried or in the soup…

Hey morel farmer, interesting. thanks for posting. it's nice to read someone's writing who's put in time and effort, and miles on their tires and boots. I've been back to a few of the burns here in BC that I visited the year previous (on roadtrips in early May various years, '04, '05, '06,'07, '10) that were fresh ones that first year visited. I found that the ones that were nearest to lakes were the ones that refruited the best. I also did a better job of looking (didn't need to the first year!), and found some in the margins of the burns that could have almost been classified as "naturals" that second year. I found almost no refruiting of morels of significance the third year I went to the one same site. The red cedars and shrubs were really coming in thick anyway. However, on a visit to one site during the fall, when out in that neck of the woods, I did find a nice fruiting of slippery jacks - Suillus brevipes, the brown skinned one, if I wasn't mistaken. 2 plastic milk crates full. :) They were very tasty fresh, and dried up nice too. (we powder/grind up the dried jacks, most of the time, and use them in soups and gravies - Czech style.) anyway, just thought I'd say hello and thank-you. I hope you have a good year.

kamloops picker, I pick several research areas in any given burnsite and then visit them about the same time each spring to photo document and farm any results found. Try it and see what transpires for you, some burns do not produce at all the first year and sometimes flush heavily the second. I have driven several hundreds of thousands of documented miles to get my information and may some day publish, but not now.

1st of all I am a morel researcher not a buyer and I feel and hope that I am not biased in my postulations. I have done market research by purchasing chanterelles, hedgehogs etc for resale, driving them from Oregon to Washington, Idaho, Utah, Montana, Wyoming & Nevada back-in-the-day. ........ In Gold Hill and other early morel production areas the price almost always started out each spring in the 40 to 50 dollar range dropping as soon as burnsite conica started hitting the market. Then a couple of years after I started picking and researching, Pakistan entered the fray and flooded the world morel market with cheap conica a few weeks before burnsites in North America were flushing. http://morel-doctor.com/fresh-morels/conica/conica.htm Especially hard hit was the European market where conica morels were sold cheaper than naturals that were just starting to flush could be flown from the US or Canada. Pickers here were not happy campers being as that caused the price for naturals to start out lower and lower each spring. Several more countries have entered the game since and are flooding the market even more. I dislike what has happened but the same thing has been occurring in all of the wild gourmet markets and not just with mushrooms. Those former high spring morel prices can still be found online or in the Midwest but not very likely at a Western buyer’s station whether it be in Canada or down here. We may blame the buyers or their bosses, a cartel or Joe of Asian heritage, it hurts us but it was pretty smart for business minded people to go teach the farmers in Pakistan, India, Mongolia, China etc how to pick matsutake, morels etc for a few pennies more that they were previously earning. ............. I personally have found that if I provide a high quality clean morel that I picked myself then I can get higher prices for my product. Speaking of quality product I have read on this board previously that people from Scandinavia market their matsutake for a much higher price than US or Canada, perhaps it has to do with smart marketing or just maybe plain quality product.

First the weather report and then the snooze; La Niña and El Niño are very interesting weather Oscillations. When La Niña is in effect the moisture track is mostly to the northern climes. When El Niño is happening the reverse is often the norm. Then there are what are often considered to be normal years. I advise learning all one can about these two effects, keep weather records and note when the weather pattern produces the most product. Last morel season in the NW USA we entered the time for naturals under what they were calling a La Niña, however when fire morel season came, the weather experts said we were entering an El Niño period. (In areas where I was conducting my research, which only included areas of the Blues and Central Idaho) I noted that black naturals were mostly sporadic and slow to flush due to the late spring due to the formerly mentioned pattern, however the blond naturals had a good run and came on more profitably than usual. Then when the fire morels began flushing things got very poor for growth in areas that historically produced huge fire morel crops. There are almost always exceptions and if someone found micro-clime islands then they may have done better than my research indicated. ………………….. Gold Hill in the natural morel season is a fairly good area and if you have access to private property it can be fairly lucrative for some. At times the local variety of white morels (these are different from inland blond naturals) have been sold in Gold Hill that are large enough that only two of them will fit side by side in a five kilo lychee basket, there have been reports of much larger ones from the area. Morels historically have been driven fairly long distances to get a better price and they may be represented as Gold Hill product. I personally have sold fire morels there that were harvested a few hours drive away, at the time I did not know where else to sell and still keep the burn that I was picking to myself. I was a newbee and trusted the buyer to keep it secret and they probably did (to a point) but a regular seller of morels could easily see my several lychee baskets full of conica in the refrigerator and then look a his small volume of local naturals. Of course he would quiz the buyer friend that he regularly sold to each year for hints. To trust a buyer with your burn location is a very dangerous thing as almost overnight that much more knowledgeable professional picker came and began picking twice the daily volume that I had been getting. The hordes soon descended and I went on to research other burn sites. ………… …………… Now as to the question as to if Canada has more volume than Gold Hill the answer is unequivocally YES, (naturals or fire morels). I have been there to research and the morel volume that is annually available to be harvested in Canada as well as Alaska would boggle the mind of someone who has only picked in the lower 48, even though I have researched and picked hundreds of burn sites in Oregon, Washington, Idaho & Montana that were exceptionally good. …………. There are billions of un-picked morels in some areas of Alaska that are too remote or grow in areas accessible only if you have a card proving your right to access, thus they often rot in the weather. Some enterprising foragers and buyers hire helicopters or jet boats to gain access to some of the remote morel carpets and believe me carpets are often the operative word. Keep your morel foraging areas close to your vest and dry when you can to keep buyers from hinting as to where your product is coming from, unless of course you are picking where there are hoards of pickers plucking the babies before they can develop folds and everyone is fighting to be able to purchase petrol & beans.

lol...$21 is unheard of for morels! Where are you? In Argentina? 21 pesos maybe! Never has it been that high on the field, dont let them con you, any one can write a receipt and show a "price". They just want to get folks out there so they will pick no matter the price. And watch prices drop hard to the ground once the flush hits. Dry dry dry folks, unles you are getting 21/lb but we all know that does not happen!

Braze6676..... I have a question....If you grow Ganoderma Lucidium, how then do you have a season?... I would think all year would be your season...... just trying to figure it out. Are you in fact growing the real thing? Do you grow the antlered version as well? Also if you have a large operation why then would you try selling them here. There is a lot better market for the mycelium. Perhaps you are barking up the wrong tree.

Hey gang, I know there isn't much $value in them, but is anyone finding spring boletes? Boletus rex-veris? I know they occur in the Cascades, and into Oregon and California and Idaho. Just curious about BC. Thanks! good luck this season!

Murray Council passed on to his reward early yesterday morning. For those who remember selling matsutake mushrooms to him I hope your memories are good ones. Celebration of life will be in early July. ............. Anytime a forager sells to any buyer there are always questions as to why the price just dropped or why the matsutake are scarce this year etc. ............ I for one liked Murray, we had our differences but he was always willing to share some of his vast knowledge and confirm my research or correct me if he thought I might be wrong. ............. Rest in Peace Murray...

Cindy Sue Haven' t had time to look. Getting 3 campgrounds ready to open. The modem in my desktop went out so I'm on the wife's laptop. The computer is 10 yeasr old so time for another. That will probably mean a trip to GP. Not sure I'll have time to look for morels, hope so. Matsiman
