Good flush in Texas- best in 5 years

March 25, 2015 McCartney foray

A good flush, about half the size as the monster 2010 flush. Harvested ~150 morels on Sunday, 303 on Monday and only 96 on Tues.  I noticed they were getting bigger on Tues.  If we get rain, maybe another flush on Friday, but only 25% chance I think.
