    Brother-in-law Paul Cooper stopped by and announced he brought a surprise. It was a good one. Morel mushrooms.

    Paul, who is a great “shroomer,” hadn’t found any, but managed to buy a pound of wild yellow morels that had been shipped for sale at a market near Bainbridge.

    Upon his arrival, the valuable fungi cargo was placed in the refrigerator. My obligation was to obtain steak for the next night, and Paul would do the cooking.

    Ask most adults what they, as a child, wanted to be when they grew up, and they might say something like police officer, teacher or veterinarian.

    Some may have realized those early aspirations, while others may have matured into very different careers. A few will say they didn’t really have a certain direction in mind.

    June 1 is the official cutoff that marks the difference between a spring bloomer and a summer bloomer. Does it matter that you know? Yes, if you want to properly prune because pruning after June 1st could result in no blooms next year.

    This spring was a great one for spring bloomers: lilacs, viburnums, azaleas, rhododendrons and many others were all able to do their thing without a major frost or freeze here at the farm.

    Outdoor Tales

     

    Recently, Indiana conservation officer Brenda Louthain was called to a bridge to check out an odd example of roadkill in the northwestern Indiana community of Monticello.

    What Brenda found was a bit of a surprise as well as a rarity. It was an armadillo. If you haven’t seen one, it looks a bit like a live armored tank on legs. And while you might expect it to be slow, an armadillo actually is quick and can jump, sometimes jumping high enough to hit the underside of a vehicle.
