I got off work early yesterday, about 2 pm, and went out in the bottoms (Stoddard county) for a pretty good jaunt and look about before I drove home. It was wet, cold and breezy down here, I would say about 50 degrees but felt colder. Anyway, I saw fresh jelly roll aka black witch's butter fungi on several fallen oak limbs. As it may not be morels it still makes me happy because its fungi lol and I know the morels will be along soon. We have some really nice and super moist soil under the leaf debris and warmer days coming soon. I am betting that in about 2 weeks it will be on like Donkey Kong lol
I am off tomm and going to hunt my own property. Will let you all know what I see the good earth doing.
