It's starting to feel good here in the Washington Co./ Iowa City area. We could use some more moisture. I'm ready to popund the woods 'til I drop of exhaustion.

Off and on mist, patchy drizzle and scattered light rain in southwest Iowa the past three days with highs in the 70s forecast for the weekend and more rain Sunday. Setting up nicely for good picking. As Shroom god noted for his area, it's also starting to feel good in southwest Iowa.

Jmook, I drove south on Tuesday for work. I headed south from Lincoln Ne on 77 to Beatrice Ne, and snaked my way all the way to Belvue KS. After picking up the product I was sent to grab, I hunted various locations all the way home. South is DRY DRY DRY. The first few spots were so dry i only walked for about 20 minutes. Then I stopped at a location near Blue Rapids, searched for about an hour in a primo spot... only found some Orange/Yellow mushrooms that were very fresh. They are a few days away down there as well. I couldnt believe that I didnt return with a bag full of morels. We are close. This cold rain undoubtedly pushed em back a few more days for us.

Postin in Iowa, because 60% of my honey holes are there... from when I used to live in the Loess Hills.

Next weekend should be on the front edge, IronMaiden. Check out the Saylorville spillway area, woods on the north side below the dam. 5 years ago I recall there were some good trees there.

^ Was talking to a guy last year who said he went out there along the disc golf and just looked a long the woods and he found a bunch. Later towards the end of the shroom season i found a nice fat morel so yeah i almost forget about that area. Thanks for the reminder !

A friend of mine found some greys in the very NW corner of Iowa on Thursday. They were in VERY sandy soil. I would not have believed it if I had not seen photos. This lead me to go check my very early location, which has a gravel type of soil, no luck! She had pretty decent size greys!! Another good week of warm weather and we should be popping!
