    I just hit my early spot in Medina County. Nothing, the ramps are barely peeking out. At least another week if not two, IMO in Medina and Summit Co. No snakes, no bugs, no may apples....could be different elsewhere around here.

    I’m in lake County and hammered over 300 last year but didn’t start finding them until May 1st. That lake really keeps the temps down until late April/early May for us. I plan on taking a hike tomorrow and will report back. Not expecting too much.

    I noticed that there's as little green showing in your woods as there is in mine! Is that an ash tree in the second pic? Nice going!

    Hi everyone, just getting into the mushroom thing. Started last year and enjoyed some coral, lions mane, hens ,and chanterelles. Expanding to morels this year. I've gone on 2 five mile treks here in columbiana county. Nothing yet as of my last walk today. I'll try again in a couple of days. Hoping for rain. Any tips would be appreciated as far as type of trrrain that's best, especially early on. Thanks, Bruce

    Look around dying ash, elm, tulip poplar trees, and in moist areas. Honestly it’s just putting time in the woods in different areas and covering a lot of ground. I have found them on the sides of railroad tracks, growing in in a little mulch bed in the middle of a parking lot at a park. Once I walked my moms woods for thee hours only to find about 30 of them growing around her burn pile walking back to the house. I have psyched my self out a little by starting to look way too early, so don’t be discouraged you will find them.

    you know I’m not great at identifying trees yet, I thought it was a slippery elm but now that you say that it looks like an ash. Their is a tiny dead elm close to it as well. Next to rail road tracks

    Thanks! I'm familiar with the wild onions that pop up all over. Even have a patch that grows in my yard.

    Foraging is rather new to me. Never thought of eating them. Seems obvious now! Something new to try...

    Outdrzman......you are proly referring to wild green onions if they are growing in your yard. Ramps look like very thick leafed grass that are usually found in very mature hardwoods. In southern ohio there are only a handful of woods I have found them. In some places in eastern ohio an eval they grow like wildfire! Do some research and try to find some. They are delicious when sautéed with salt, pepper, and olive oil! Good luck

    Went to one of my spots in Greene county just to see what it was looking like. Some very baby Grey's were growing. This is about a week earlier than last year for the same place. IMG_20190411_120736233_HDR.jpg
