Found one huge morel, Sussex NJ

I found one huge morel (8") under a dying ash here in Green Township, Sussex County. I searched my property 3 days ago and found none, I was on vacation the last two weeks and thought I completely missed them. I'm going out to look for more today.

How far from Mercer County ( Princeton area) are you? If not far, scope out wooded area's, parks, etc. might have some luck. Check out Morelmania.com and keep an eye on area to see if anyone is finding there yet. Good Luck.

NJ Morels found
|May 1 2008, 12:50 PM |
I did not find myself but my brother just called to tell me he just found 6 morels around a Tulip Poplar tree in his back yard. So Im going out tomarrow to start checking some area's. He lives in Sussex County. I will post after my hunting. I did go out on Sunday in His area and found nothing so i believe they are just starting in that area.

We went out yesterday AM and came home with 32 good-sized early ones. They are justing starting to pop in the Delaware Water Gap area. We also found ours in woodland Tulip tree groves. We will be checking every other day and will be heading over to the PA side of the river as well.

Nancy, your back! welcome. Decided to stay in NJ? last time i talked to you, you were getting ready to move down south. Keep in touch on the board. I went out on Friday after my brother found in his yard, I found only 3 morels, Do you think its still too cold here? keep in touch.
NJ morels Greys and Half Free
|May 6 2008, 1:06 PM |
Found 3 greys along a deer path ( very small) and 9 what i think are half free. I am starting my 2008 morel journel with pictures. As soon as I do some serious picking ( and findings) i will post with the pictures. Still very slow coming up this year. Hope it gets better, weather is looking very promissing and temps are staying in a steady 70. I will stay tuned. good luck to all and happy spring!
NJ morels are finally here NICE SWEET!
|May 8 2008, 11:17 AM |
Went out 6 am this morning and picked some really nice size blonds. Picked 47 in all. I took pictures (always do, seeing is believing)of the morels and where i picked. If any one is interested in seeing email me. I would also like help on identifying a tree where i picked 11 of the morels by. Also i have a great recipe for stuffed morels if any one is interested in.

Yes, we are still here. NJ's realestate market isn't doing what we need. We're still looking to head south as soon as possible. So, we are picking morels 3 times a week in NJ instead and loving every minute! What a great long spring. If this weather continues, we might go into June this year! I seriously need to replenish my dried supply after a winter of sauce-making! Will be heading up to Lake Wallenpaupack area next week to see what's up along the way in PA. Will report back.
