Started seeing quite a few Facebook reports of Micros being found in Southern Ohio today. Mostly black morels but one report was a gray. Good Luck Everyone. It looks like it’s shaping up to be a great season!
Hey Jim33. Really??? Don't tease us. Getting the fever, for sure. The morel map isn't even showing any reports in KY, yet. Just seems too cold still. I definitely don't wanna be a naysayer. I want morel madness!! Just curious where these reports are coming from. https://www.thegreatmorel.com/sightings/
I have to agree. I'm up here in NE Ohio, so we're about the last folks in the state to find morels. I remember one year not long ago when we had temps in the low to mid-80's in early March! That year wasn't worth a crap for shrooms of any description.Asparagus will start when soil temp hits 52...nothing showing yet in garden. Better shroom seasons are the ones that seem to take forever to warm up, but I will say the forcast temps dropping below freezing at night has me a bit worried. Needs to start doing better than that by end of this week...nice to start seeing some pics though
I like to go out and scout new potential trees/spots a few weeks early. I actually found 10 decent size blacks yesterday in my normal spot. However it’s still too early, saw a lot of small ones and babies I left to grow. But I did pick a couple nice ones. I couldn’t help it! We just needed a little taste lol. Mother Nature is keeping us waiting too long this year!Good for you Kym...I think I could find some babies if I'd check on a couple of my early spots, but nothing of eating size yet. Too many hunters pick anything and everything. Most spots I pick I can leave the smallies and get em later on when they are worth picking.
Here is a few pics from yesterday. I never think to bring a receipt or anything with me to time stamp lol..Good for you Kym...I think I could find some babies if I'd check on a couple of my early spots, but nothing of eating size yet.
