    It was snowing this morning. I was going to start walking around this weekend to see what was happening but theres barely any green in the woods yet. Where ever you are looking must be as far south as those counties go, but it's been 47* soil temps for a while maybe they are hiding under the leaves

    How about a few words about the environment where those blacks were found? Never found a black yet, and they are kind of on the list! Took a look at the woods the other day, and very little green was visible. No may apples at all yet.

    Found around 20 Half-free morels thursday with a little searching in summit County.
    I did not pick any they were all small just poking through the leaves.

    I was shocked, found it and another that looked too much like a false right by my work van.

    Upon getting home and cutting it open, its might be a half but it looks pretty verpa-ish. To the bin!

    Went out yesterday in Lake county not expecting to find much of anything for to the long cold spell. Literally in the woods 5 minutes and found 4 small blacks pushing threw leaves. Ended up finding around 40 but all were too small to pick. Damn cold weather looks like it will hold on for at least another week. I’ll probably check on them Friday to see if any are worth harvesting. I love looking at other people’s pics so I attached a few for you all!
    Hang in there everyone!

    One last thing...it’s shaping up to be a FANTASTIC year. Makes me wonder if it’s nature’s way of saying “Thank You” for the drastic decrease in air pollution. I’ll take it!!!

    Does anyone else just look anywhere?

    I work construction and I just look in every customer's yard and I find them in the grass...the mulch...no where near any trees.

    In the woods I find them by the trees typically associated with morels, but I find a good half bag a year just looking in weird places.

    I’m a landscaper and find them in mulch beds too.

    What looks verpa-ish about it? It's hollow. I see no cotton in that shroom. And if it's there, it's pretty obvious.

    I found what I thought were Chants in a buddy's mulch bed. You can see what's wrong with that statement right off the bat. A little investigation showed them to be jack o'lanterns!
