May Mushrooms of the Month

Welcome to the May installment of Mushrooms of the Month. Finally, Spring is starting to warm up here and we all know what that means–mushrooms! Along with the decent rainfall we have been getting as well, things are looking much brighter for us here in Ohio this upcoming month as concerning the world of fungi. More colorful species will start to reveal themselves amongst the trees, along with the wild flowers that are already displaying their array of richness and beauty for all of us to enjoy. The elusive species of Morchella are actually just starting to peak and came quite late for most of us here in Ohio. Plus, some other edible species will start to show themselves this month. So get away from technology for a bit and get out enjoy the charms of all that Spring has to offer and join us for a foray!
