    Blacks are popping in my early early spot in sw Portage County. I picked 4 this weds, left the rest to grow. There should be lots of blacks out in the area by next weekend.

    I haven't found anything in my spot in Kent yet. Haven't gone in a couple days though. Maybe this sun will make things happen?

    Any tips on where to look for these? Anywhere that would be a waste of my time. I am in Atwater. Thanks in advance!!

    Found a scattering of baby grays/yellows yesterday in southern Portage county. Was out looking for blacks and almost stepped on these little guys!

    And I wish I could, but I can't offer any advice on where to look for black morels.... IMO they are the hardest to find. Maybe in general, you want partly shaded, well-drained, some undergrowth, and some people think they like black cherry, tulip poplar, and/or ash trees.

    My buddies in Southern Ohio are cleaning up right now, here in Portage County we're usually a week or two behind them. Won't be long!

    I finally found a black spot in NEO. Medina County. Picked a hundred or so Tuesday. And, no joke, some had been up for at least two weeks. When I figure out how to post pics from my phone, I'll post some.

    I agree with KSU. Blacks are the hardest to find. In SEO, I find them under tulip popar. My new spot...all black cherry. I'm heading South to the secret family spot tomorrow. (We'll call it "near I-70") I'll report back as to what's shaking. But so far, this has been the slowest Spring that I can rememeber.

    @kasmir - sorry, but any extra that I get this year are going to my restaurateur cousin. He hooks me up ;)

    It is a banner year, so far! Went out for a couple hours today:
