Corn is coming; Morels are popping!
May 12, 2011
Corn is coming and morels are getting some size.
What a great time of year. I haven't had time this spring to get to my favorite crappie hole, but I have had a chance to get out in the timber for a little morel hunting. And to top it off, the corn planted around northeast Iowa is finally starting to emerge. Like I said... what a great time of year. And the morel mushrooms are starting to get a little size to them. Check it out! By the way... favorite way to fix them is to cut in half length ways, bread lightly with a mix of half flour and half finely-crushed saltine crackers, then brown in butter over medium heat in cast iron skillet.
Unfortunately, this spring is also coming with unbelievable flooding along the Mississippi River in the Delta. Think supportive thoughts and say some prayers for those battling the flood waters.
If you can't watch on RFD-TV every Thursday at 7:30 a.m. CT or Saturday at 10:30 a.m. CT, you can always watch the shows here on the web site.
And most importantly, keep on having fun outdoors on the farm!
