    Dang, with my travel schedule in March, I'm going to find it hard to around here in the Bham area. Checked my atlanta spot yesterday, nothing there. I'll be in KY first week of April and will check my spots there.

    Here's another thing I noticed. Your daily paper costs you 2 bucks per? Wow! Ours costs 75 cents, and that after a 50% increase from 50 cents! And I still buy it even though I don't think it's worth it.

    Hey there! I lost my phone and your contact info. If you still have mine, shoot me a text and I'll add you back in.
    Didn't think it was this early here, but when I'm in town, I'll start scouring some areas.

    Timmy, I found 9 big enough to pick today (Sun., 3/8) in Athens, GA. (which is a good bit farther north than BHAM, I was surprised to realize just now). One was about a week old, "full grown", about 4 inches tall, and the rest were about like the ones in your photograph with the paper, respectable enough to eat. I saw two other babies that I left for next week (I hope). So it's getting going.

    B3F17F21-22BC-4E23-B02D-CEDA345F9048.png So my one early, best patch is up to 20 morels.. 2 in fridge & 18 left to grow.. The last 2 yrs this patch has fruited super early and great for 10-12 days; and then all my other spots cranked up and ran appx 2 weeks.. My best guess is for Bham metro most fruiting or “ heart of season” will be now (11th)- the end of March.. Huntsville 16th - April 7th

    F6CA074F-FA52-4DF4-B090-B73FD15D3354.png M Geo, first harvest of year yesterday: all from my early patch. Bham is prob just 5 days or so behind the parts of Tx that are booming. But I agree our season looks to be above average. Either way it will go down the next 2-2.5 weeks
