A teaser from our one little harvest last year. At least they were big ones. Pretty sure I missed last year's thread completely, but am going to read through it because I'm excited!! How is everyone doing? Any new spots picked out to try? My husband and I have spent a little time finding new areas for adventure this year, so that should be fun [aside from my current IT band issue]. Wishing everyone the best of luck, and looking forward to your posts!

I found these honkers on 5/7 last year, mid-HV. I thought this year was going to be early, but the warm-up has slowed a bit, so I'd guess we are on track for similar timing. What are you guys noticing in terms of indicator species? View attachment 41458

April 20 (2012) was the earliest for me here in 6S (Utica area). Yellow morel that is, no Blacks to be found in my hunting areas.
I check my early PGs but I don't scrape away the leaves looking for the first one. I just check on the progress from a distance to avoid damage until they are ready to harvest.. Good luck this year, enjoy the woods.

I heard that when the maple leaves get to be quarter sized the morels are out is that true?

Hey everyone..
Soil has to reach 45 to 50 F.
Leeks are going crazy
Leeks, or "ramps" as we call them in NE Ohio, are indeed up. I took a walk along a hardwood ridge the other day which should be warmer than the bottomland I found the ramps in, and there was absolute NO sign of may apples at all! Very little green out there! We are behind. It was a really cold Winter, and it hasn't been all that warm a Spring. I don't mind the slow warm up, as long as we don't have any wild temp swings!
