    42+ temps today, yeah! Almost no ground frost in our area, so all the moisture should be soakin in really good. Hope the Morel Mycelium are getting a good drink, so they can fruit out profusely! Found a few new spots over the winter, going to be a awesome spring for sure.

    My Dad had the 'touch' for finding morels when I was growing up. It does not seem to have rubbed off but I still try at least once or twice each year to find a few. My few usually ends of being one, or sadder still, the base that the deer left behind. Going to try again this year. There has been lots of moisture this winter, perhaps Dad's touch will rub off, at least a little. Thanks for this site to check into and learn from. Good night.

    Here's the huming bird migration link - http://www.hummingbirds.net/map.html

    "Buckthornman" we'll, be watching for yr posts on yr "WrenOmeter" for sure, as its accuracy is beyond. Compare!! No time now to run for President, Ha Ha..... "Shroomtropper" should be showing up soon, unless he's in over his head again with work.
    70 here today, WOW!!

    Yes Mr.elm I do believe in wrenometer. And another moist warm day here as well. Gonna come early this year how early and how strong I guess will have to wait and see? But nice hearing back. Always a pleasure. No little brown friends yet but you will be the 1st to know!

    Wow, kinda got caught flat footed with this warm weather, should be scouting. Its always a fun time in spring to get you hiking stuff together. OldElm, buckthorn, what do you think, pretty good start I would say.

    Hi everyone! If you're just getting started and need help finding your first morels, check out this super informative video on getting started. This is my passion and hope to help others discover their passion for mushrooms as well!!! Good luck! Here is the link to my video: http://youtu.be/ismIK7GhmP8

    " mushroom_mentor " the good news is nobody ever died from eating the wrong tree. On the other hand proper mushroom identification is vitally important. The saying goes " All wild mushrooms are edible, some only ONCE." There are a couple real easy trick's to identifying Elm bark/trees. Unfortunately the kids got me a new lap top, and I'm having one heck of a time trying to post pictures!!

    Gotta like the night time forecasted temps for the next week...... Gonna happen fast, as there's no leaf canopy blocking out the sun. Sharpen up your knives,& gather up your plastic bags.
