For avid mushroom hunters, morel season is the beginning of six months (or more) of fresh and fleeting culinary delights. For those in Piedmont North Carolina, like me, morel season just arrived, according to this citizen science sightings map. You can add to the map if you see some (and don’t worry, you won’t have to give away your secret spot–just the nearest town). Watch their progression northward–Virginia and West Virginia, they’re on the way!
