Morel Moment


I’ve been away from the farm for a writing workshop, and returned to find a beautiful gift in the front garden. This spring, a single morel fruited for Leafhopper Farm. It’s the third year in a row we’ve had surprise morel action in the cultivated garden space. The personal excitement I get out of this wonderful site is endless. I never expect them, but some how, they arrive, even if it’s only a solitary bloom. On a bed of fresh dandelion flowers, I feast! It’s nettle, dandelion, and a mix of winter garden greens in a spring diet. Gratitude for such a gift from the land, and the ability to share it with another who has never enjoyed this fruit of the soil before.
