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.
When ksu refers to his "early spot" he is talking about an area that has a particular microclimate that warms more quickly than the surrounding areas. FWIW, I've never found a morel until May around here in Mahoning Co.
