It’s lookin up.
I'm getting the same soil temps in Bergen County and even the Hudson Valley. There are some early stragglers here and there but I think this year's going to be very similar to last year in terms of timingSearched hard in Central Jersey yesterday, nada. One thing I found was the soil was a little cold, right around 50 deg. It needs to hit that magical number of 53! Heading out this morning in Mercer and Monmouth to check some spots, keep your fingers crossed everyone, they're coming...
Has anyone been out looking yet? I see some positive signs that we may soon get some activity.
Me too, I went out Saturday and today, but nothing yet in west central NJI spent a few hours on Saturday but no shrooms, not yet anyway. It’s a bit too early and too dry however this week will change all that. We need several nights in the 50’s. I did get a stringer full of trout though.
I think this year is right on track, these will still need to grow for another week - so April 25th they will be nice and big, then you still have another week before they start decomposing (unless there's very bad weather to stop growth or speed up decomp)Nice, My rule of thumb is the 25th of April to start looking for morels, That's really early this year. I better get out and start looking.
My best hunts and finds are in parks and lawns. in the parks, I look Along the trails in open sunny areas Not the woods. And I do pretty well also walking my dog I look on everyone's lawn too and have found some nice morels, one year my corner neighbors lawn was covered it Morels it was crazy but oddly they never returned again and she always tells me before she cuts her lawn to see If I want to look before her husband cuts it. LOLHi all, new to site, been lurking for over a year. I harvest beautiful chickens and hens on my 7 acres every year, but would love to find some morels. Any advice appreciated, or even a foraging meet-up. Thanks.
