I am already very much waiting for the spring. Got to do a little hiking over the winter but not much luck on the winter oysters :(

So anyway. I love this message board and wanted to see if anyone had any other sites they like to use for mushroom and other foraging in OHIO. I pick about a dozen different kinds of mushrooms and now moving toward the plant edibles. Any site, book or advise would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

I am very happy to see all this snow in Norther Ohio the last few weeks. I hope it gets the ground all nice and wet for the spring.

I am just hopeful for a "normal" ish year like in the 70's 80' s and 90's. These years of extremes seem to be the new normal in all aspects of life.

I would say this seems more like a normal winter than weve had in awhile.Lets just hope it doesnt turn off into a hot dry spring.

My grandpa used to always tell me that if I am picking morels in shorts and a t shirt then it's to warm and the season won't last long....pick em in jeans and a hooded sweatshirt then the season will be a good one. The more I hunt the more that old quote rings true....it seems these extreme warm ups we have had the last 3 springs have hurt the fruiting but I can remember a few years before that we would always pick them when it's low to mid 60's but we seemed to have more rain....it almost seems that if its warm then it's dry these past few springs. Can't wait to see how this spring goes.

The 30 day for my part of town is looking good, no major warm up but it can go up a little or down. And on this website you can go back to 2012, 2011 and so on to compare the temps the last few springs to get somewhat of a idea.

Hello denise, good luck to you this yr.
If anyone is interested in taking a look at what kind of winter/spring weather made for some of your better past/present years, you can get all the details here... archived climate data-nws wilmington ohio.....goes all the way back to 1996 i believe
