    TG, they do grow in Texas. There is a board that has finds by state, there's a few there. Not an impossibility but looks pretty far & few between and hit in March.

    I'm in the piney woods .. I see that they find them north of me and south of me, but not necessarily here. *pout*

    I am absolutely sure that I would pick and eat the wrong ones and poison myself. 'O'

    We've had luck in pines in the past but usually find them near dying elm trees, sometimes around tulip and poplar too. Best year ever was as a kid and my grandpa cut down an elm in their yard, the next spring the whole backyard was full of them. It was awesome!

    I'll have to do my research and then write it on my calendar for next year.. I think it would be rewarding and fun to find and harvest your own to eat and share..

    I've never seen any here (or anywhere else growing wild)
    Is there a poisonous one or something like magic mushrooms that looks similar that would be easy to confuse them with?
    I wouldn't want to wake up in ER or be seen dancing naked on the High Street

    Just takes a little research. I refuse to be afraid of snakes. I just make sure I can identify the harmless ones vs the poisonous ones. I KNOW my snakes...

    If I decide to start 'shroomin' .. you can bet I will know how to identify every type of mushroom that grows around here.. good and bad .. before I put one in my mouth! But I WILL get there...

    There's a false morel that is poisonous but it doesn't look that close. The false ones make a person really, really sick. Hospital visit sick. The magic ones, well, that I can't tell you much about - made that mistake in college once.

    False Morel (they look more wrinkly than spongy and attach to the stem in the middle instead)

    Chanterelles and yellowfeet are yummy. I also like champignons.

    I've hunted the first ones myself few times, gotten the second ones few times and buy the third ones every now and then. You cannot find almost any kind of mushrooms in nature here around that time of the year tho, it's more an autumn thing. Luckily champignons are available at stores year-round.

    I don't think I've had champignons, unless they were in something & I didn't know it. Going to have to research them now! Found 72 yellows last night in one of our regular places but still nowhere near what we normally find. That same spot is usually a 400-600 in one little area kind of place.
