Question Garlic Mustard--Reason For Concern?

Hey all of you Mycologists, Mycologist wannabes, Mycelium fruits, and Mushroom fanciers,
Heard any concerns about the spread of the non-indigenous, invasive Garlic Mustard with regard to Morel Mycelium?
If anything has been published please share with me. This Morel season I have noticed the Mustard pushing into some of my prized spots and wondered if this will ultimately push out the Mycelium.
thoughts, research, anything?
Think maybe we should pull this as we hunt.

I have found morels growing in the garlic mustard. I also try to pull it and eat it... but it's rather horrible when cooked.

If you do pull it be sure to dispose of it in a trash can so it can't continue to flower and go to seed. The stuff is just THAT insidious.

The unopened flower buds make for a very tasty trail snack.

Re: Garlic Mustard--Reason For Concern?

it will just take over areas and make hunting in the mustard hard. I eat it sparingly in salads. No point in trying to pull any unless you have a massive group of people doing it. shit spreads like wildfire.

Re: Garlic Mustard--Reason For Concern?

yeah, not bad mixed with the greens, but who can eat that much?
Need to launch it into space with Zebra mussels & Kudzu.
I know I am doing little good, but if I'm bending over to pick shrooms I may as well pull some of that while I'm down there. LOL

Found an article about MSU research. I'll post a link when I'm done with work.
