Hey CW, I know that in cultivation of morels vs. hens you want a colder period for initiating the morel primordia formation and fruit bodies around 36-42 for morels primordia jumping to 40-50 for fruit body (Fahrenheit) followed by a jump in heat vs. the hens want 50-60 for primordia and jump to 55-60 for fruit body. As far as the movement it fits the regions based on the south will get warmer first for the morels where as for the hens up north we'll get colder first before the south. Never thought of this connection before since I'm a knew grower so thank you for initiating these thought processes.Yes! this rain and cool temps is just what we need to kickstart the hen season. I haven't found any yet but next week there should be some up. I find it interesting that morels start in the south and work their way north but hens start in the north and work their way south!
