Did we miss the morel harvest?

I was out watering our morel patch recently (it’s, ahem, been awhile since we posted, but Team Mushroom has nevertheless been on the job each week–honest), and did a double-take. 

Was this strange, dried up item with a promising honeycomb surface our only mushroom of the season? Did we miss the long-awaited morel harvest?

I got in close, picked it up, and inhaled.

Smells like a leaf.

Back to keeping the patch damp until the rains come in the fall and keeping our fingers crossed for next spring.
