Spring in Wisconsin is with us now in full force, with the leaves coming out, trilliums and other wildflowers blooming and, of course, grass growing. Yes, its mowing season again. Time to fill up the tractors and try to keep everything tame. Oh well, what it takes up in time it gives back in relaxation!
The morels are coming in good this year, with about 75 or so picked so far. I added a picture of one day's haul. They are good little suckers, and I think that the number I'm getting this year will allow me to dry some so I can use them all year round. Nature provides an excellent bounty at times. I also ran across a turkey nest today with 20 eggs in it. Mom was reluctant to leave and scared me a bit when she finally flushed. Going to be a busy mom if all of those eggs hatch!
Also snacking on 'fiddle ferns' and wild asparagas when I find it, so walking around the course has been fun lately. Had a group of boy scouts camping on the property over a weekend about a month ago, and they helped me out quite a bit with buckthorn removal as we helped them earn their forestry badges. Wonderful group of boys, and many of them got to shoot disc golf for the first time in their lives. A good time had by all.
I'l have to get some pictures up soon. Keep them flying out there!
