I know it is hard now to find Morels anymore. I us to pick them as a child as we had a lot of Cottonwood trees and we were allowed to burn our fields. That is where you can find Morels. Look around Cottonwood trees where it is damp. Hope this helps good luck.

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1910, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
