01:52 pm - Yummy miracles of nature - morels in the garden
After a weekend with truly amazing weather, the clouds rolled back in and the temperatures dropped somewhat, but Portland was still determined to prove itself to be a wonder. Last night, teaotter and I found that we had eight morel mushrooms (which are simultaneously delicious and vastly expensive) growing near our garbage can. I harvested some, checked online to make certain that they were truly morels (they are, being completely hollow inside, there's pretty much nothing else they could be), I shall be fixing gnocchi with italian sausage and morel sauce tonight. With luck, they will return next year.

Nope. We've been doing a lot of work on the garden (mulching and adding manure to previously impressively barren soil), but the area around the garbage cans has been completely untouched.

It's times like this

that I really miss the guys that would show up at my parents' house with a bread-bag full of the things that they would sell for $30. Mind you, this was in the 80s but I still miss them.
