Great hike today - ramps & garlic mustard a’ plenty but no morels. 7 miles on the odometer. Might have to stop stressing and just fish away the evenings til next weekend.
If there are morels there they will be in the drier spots. Morels don't like wet feet. The borer really did a number on the ash around here. It seemed like an eye blink and they were all dead!Question! I live near a nature preserve that just did a massive tree clearing due to emerald ash. How long (and will there be?) for morel growth to happen? This year? Next year? The cut trees happened recently- strolling here now and it’s shocking how many trees are gone. The preserve is on very nice marshy land.
Or I’m being the pessimist haha. I guess since I started looking for morels 5 years ago, I always read that you need rain or moisture for morels to come up.Rain forecast doesn’t look great in my area🤦♂️. At least the temps shouldn’t get out of control. I have had years in the past (I think, and I hope if my memory serves me correct), that it was pretty dry but we still had good years, the morels just didn’t stay as fresh for as long. Someone please feel free to correct my optimism.
