I am new to the wild mushroom scene but I have been introduced to/eaten several varieties that I have found to be delicious. I want to start finding my own. I have done some research but I am not entirely sure how accurate it is; which is why I am here. I have heard that around here in northern virginia (Arlington) that morels, chicken/hen of the woods typically sprout when the soil/air is between 40-60 degrees. Is this accurate? Some other sites say first week of April is really perfect time. It is 55 degrees out and rainy, I am itching to check out a few spots tomorrow when the soil is moist, but I could be embarrassingly wrong haha. Does anyone know from experience what they found is the perfect time for us Virginians to start enjoying these wild mushrooms?
