I live in Chittenden County, anybody see any morels yet? I've moved to a new place, trying to get a handle on when to look.
Thanks Elias, I'm in Richmond on the Huntington border. It may be a little too early here, but I'll check my woods today.The last two pictures were found on May 5 in chitteden county, in the Champlain valley under a very dead ( no bark) elm. Then the first theee pics were found today may 8 farther south, maybe ten miles, in Addison county, under a dead elm ( fragments of bark left). Margins of hardwood forest with some white pine.
Yeah, they're black..along the side of the road..under a telephone pole, on the side of the road.Nice those look good, are th y big blacks? what kind of trees were they under? I think the Champlain valley season might be on its way out. The ones I found today were either perfect or past prime, massive tho haha. I bet higher elevation will be here soon if not already.
Can I buy morels from any of you? We are in Woodstock but can drive anywhere to get them. YaninaPicked 56 mostly giant yellows today, some were a little past prime, but I should add these were in a low elevation area. Sunday I was searching a much higher elevation and was still finding blacks still going strong, with yellows not fully developed. Last year a friend reported finding morels as late as June 10 on north facing slopes, so the "morel" of the story is elevation and exposure have a huge impact on where and when you find 'em.
