    I know Grizzly already found some baby blacks but let's start a fresh thread for finds in Northeast Ohio.

    False morels found today in one of my black spots... Exact same date as last year minus the snow.

    Neat find! Comparing them to the acorn caps, they are still quite small so, good eyes! Yes, it's time to get back out there and have another look. I noticed about 8 dandelions up in my back yard this afternoon. Things are a darn sight further along than they were at this time last year.

    Make sure that they are true dandelions and not cat ears. Last week I thought I was seeing dandelions in the road ditches but they were cats. I am convinced that the cats come sooner

    No, jdk, they were genuine dandelions. I could follow the stem right down to the dandelion green. BTW, if there's anyone out there who likes dandelion as bitter greens for salad, or would like to try them, now is the time to get them. They're still young, tender, and not overly bitter.

    But, with the cold and snow last night, they're gone. Not a single yellow flower left in the yard after the snow melted. I don't know where they go, but they certainly didn't go to seed!

    I think it is going to be a crazy year. We went looking for greys but found 50 yellows in Richland County today.

    We got a couple of inches of snow and the tops of some had been froze. BUT here is what puzzles me...this was our grey (black) honey hole. We were out of town and did not check the end of March...I didn't expect to find any let alone yellows.

    I found 4 yellows in Delaware county today, still building. With this warm weather coming in, it should happen by the weekend. Was in a hotspot, south facing slope, in green vege, getting more sun than rest of woods. One at base of Osage Orange, one at base of white ash, the other two were standing alone.

    Nice find not2oldyet. Around Elm? What's crazy is the highest 4" soil temp. In Ohio today is showing 46 degrees. We're showing 38 here in Trumbull Co. and I believe your area is 41 and these things are popping. Anyone have thoughts on these cold soil temps and morels are still growing?

    At the risk of sounding trite...they are the elusive morel. I have been hunting for 50 years and as soon as I think I have a rhyme or reason, I am proven wrong. Yes look at soil temps but watch the calendar and green growth, also devils urns. Just when I think I know...I don't. i am retired and have time to look so I simply post what I find so hopefully you find too.

    Oh and not around elm but around the same elevation within 30 feet of about 1100 ft each way. I don't know if that means anything or not, but it is what it is.

    Are Delaware and Richland counties considered Northeast Ohio?

    @ not2oldyet, call me crazy but what you have there in them pics are black sponges. Ive hunted over 50 years and them are the light colored blacks. Same configuration, same size of stems and same pores as a black. Ok now tell me I'm nuts. It makes sense that there was no elms around.
