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

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.
