Went and checked my 3 hottest spots today to no avail. I pulled close to 100lbs. from these areas last year so I know they produce. One of the spots I went to always is the first to fruit and I generally find nothing but little greys there. I checked all my favorite patches at least for signs of small growth and nothing yet. The ground is starting to look pretty decent but we definitely need one more good rain. There were quite a few areas that were starting to look pretty promising but I only came across one patch of violets throughout the entire day. That was the only indicator plant that I came across.

Its getting close, real close guys…

Yeah, I think it might be a good time to scout some new spots in the meantime just for fun. It is pretty apparent which areas are gonna produce this(at least where I have been). Maybe I will go nab some sandy mushrooms while we wait for the hoards to awaken. Season seems like its gonna be a little early this year so hopefully that means we might get a little bit of a longer one too :)

I'm not going to get out till Thursday, and haven't been out yet this year but just looking at the 24 hour change in the trees in town I think the ground might explode tonight/tomorrow rain or shine!! leave some for me

Late afternoon on Easter Sunday. Rain drops starting to pepper the ground. This is a good thing, but we need a sustained rain to make things go. Spotty showers do no one any good. If we get measurable precip overnite, perhaps by Wednesday, we will start to see the 1 st greys. Look for the strawberry mite & the dutchmans breeches. Then sniff the the ground. You will know by taking stock of your surroundings. After Tuesday, the hunt is on! Happy hunting waste ciye!

BTW, watch postings from OK, KS & MO. Good YouTube vid from a man in OK to show how to look up instead of down. Be a tree spotter 1st before you fix your eyes to the ground! The next few weeks should be glorious!

Agreed. I definitely like to visit my spots early though to get a gauge on how long it seems like its going to be. I would much rather show up 2 days early than 2 days too late :) But either way, I will certainly be going out tomorrow even though it is unlikely there will be anything yet. Gonna go scout 2 new places I have been eyeing for a while. I heard someone had some luck with some greys on on a river island yesterday. I'm half tempted to throw on my waders and tromp myself out into the water. IME the platte river islands with that sandy loam soil sometimes produce a couple days early due to being so near the water table and the way that the sandy soil heats up more quickly. I'm not expecting any big hauls yet but enough for dinner would be nice.. My morel fever started around June and there is only one cure!
