Howdy Buckhornman....... Found a good patch of "Ramp's" yesterday, surprised the heck outta me how far along they already were, we'll be eating them this weekend no problem. Still plenty of moisture in the woods, so no worries other than we better pay attention, cause it's gonna happen fast.
Rain in the forecast this week, ground temps in the high 40s where Im at, seeing small Ramps here and there as well. My only concern is we get too hot too fast and the season is over as soon as it starts.
cooling down a little end of week, especially at night. I went out to look at my ramp spot, sure enough there coming up. Went outside and took a soil temp reading, 46 Deg. Enough moisture now, but could use some more. Need some nights in 50's to get it going. Preferably with rain.
Thx oldelm.Just know it's getting close. Mother nature is working 24hrs a day. And I,m just trying to get in sync with her. She needs to give up some rain. I,m worried if we don,t will be short lived. But I know it's gonna be soon. I,m guessing but I think by end of April there will be some blacks I,'ve been working to much time to go sleep outside!
Buckthornman, let's hope we get the predicted rains tonite/tmrrw. Everything sorta on hold in our woods, ramps hardly grew at all this week. Kids took a drive down to Rochester today & then back up our Wisconie side..... Zip / 0 nothing happening. If we get the rain I'm thinking it'll happen here first week of May. Do you ever gather pheasant backs while morelling it? We like em.
I usually just stick to morels.I run across oysters and grab them.I grab what I notice. Raining nice in central minnesota tonight. Thank you mother nature. Gonna pick some asparagus this week. Gonna start check-in my early black spot every couple days next week.
Who's ready to look like they went through a briar patch! Pick me pick me!!!! Lol buckthorn can't stop buckthornman! Good luck to everyone this season. And remember tick checking does count for foreplay! Must be the rain...
