Just checked ground temp and its 54. I read somewhere years ago that ground temp needs to be between 55-58 for shrooms to pop. So we have some rain in the forecast, think I will be checking after work. Wish me luck

I checked a few spots and nothing yet. Im hoping for some rain. Might check again today and scope out some places. My guess is next weekend will be good if we get rain.

When I have some morels, I wash them in plain cool water. Then, I pour the spore bearing wash water into 2 liter pop bottles 3/4 full. Squeeze each bottle so most of the air is expelled, then cap it and freeze the bottle. This helps keep it from splitting under ice pressure. After a few weeks, let the bottles thaw out. The next day pour the water where you want the morels to grow. Next year keep your eye on that spot where you poured the water. This has worked for me three times (different years). I live in southern Indiana and wanted to share this when the season gets started. Mike

I’m curious as to why you freeze it.

So has anyone found any shrooms yet?
As warm as it’s been they are bound to come up as soon as we get some rain.
Which we have a small chance for rain all week here around Big Hill area.

Went out today to try and find some morels. I didn’t have any luck, it’s just too dry.

Had a few small rains over the last four days. Went out a little yesterday and didn’t find any. Red buds have been our for awhile and usually a few weeks after them. Ground is a little cool but once found them in the snow.
