    Found new sphagnum bog!!

    Happened across this spot while I was out looking for morels today.

    It may not look like it, but there was actually water UNDER the grass. I jumped up and down and the ground literally moved like waves. It was WILD!!































    Terrible pic, but I found some RED sphagnum..

    I wasn't going to, but I couldn't resist the red stuff. I brought home a few good handfuls of it to grow.

    Mass you need to drag me out with you sometime. I'm a huge fan of steak and morels. I could use the excercise these days...

    1) If the bog "quakes" when you walk on it it may be a floating mat of Sphagnum. You might fall through and get trapped underneath the mat and drown.
    2) Who owns the land? Do you have permission (State, Federal or privately owned)? Sphagnum nitidum, a red species, is endangered. If the land is privately owned and you are removing plants without permission it's not just poaching; it's theft.

    Is "quake" the technical term for moves? If so, then yes.. it quakes. Kind of like walking on water.
    My High School principal from many moons ago owns the land. And yes, I have permission to be there. Trust me, I'm not dumb enough to get shot by some redneck out turkey hunting just because I want some mushrooms. This is Michigan.. everybody in the sticks owns a gun.
