"Hobbits have a passion for mushrooms, surpassing even the greediest likings of Big People. A fact which partly explains young Frodo's long expeditions to the renownd fields of the marish, and the wrath of the injured Maggot."
Morel Mushrooms are ready! Sam (of course!) is our mushroom hunter and has been peeping around for them since the beginning of April, even though he knows they come in May! We've enjoyed about 5 pounds of mushrooms so far this year... we jokingly talk about our most expensive meal of the year (since we get them only for the pickins' but they go for $20 and more per pound!)
Gently sauteed in butter, Morel Mushrooms are the best addition to our May meals!

However, we are considering changing Trinity Acres to Bamfurlong in the Marish. Samwise went out to gather the Mushrooms for this evening's meal and he found many stumps. Some mysterious hobbit has been stealing our mushrooms! Or maybe we just need some more dogs!

"Shamefaced [Frodo Baggins] laugh[ed], 'I am terrified of him and his dogs. I have avoided his farm for years and years. He caught me several times trespassing after musrooms, when I was a youngster at Brandy Hall.'"
