High Mountain Mushrooms

John Day, Oregon, US

Each year I can hardly wait for winter to be over and spring to begin.You would think after many years of mushrooming the new would wear off.But for me its a new beginning.After the snow melts usually late April to early May when night time temperatures rise and threat of .early frost is gone I head to the mountains.First to fruit are the logging morels.Even though the logging morel is a natural mushroom they appear first in two year old logging units.They will last about three or 4 weeks depending on weather conditions.I then start start harvesting natural morels in timbered areas.By this time king boletes are starting to show there face.Which usually start around June 10th.Each day I harvest morels and king boletes I bring them home to be cleaned and dried.The boletes are sliced for drying and placed on screens.I sell mostly dried product(morel-king bolete) which works out better for me.The mushrooms are then stored in airtight tubs for future sales.
