    Anyone out there finding any shrooms yet? I went out yesterday and found 4 beef steaks so i would think the morels would be popping up anytime.

    Been out for 2 weeks now off and on and have reached a conclusion or two that even though they should be fruiting there are other factors than ideal temps and moisture. No undergrowth providing shade here in W Ohio and the mycellium knows this cold spell coming is what it takes to make the scleotia fruit. I have hit every elm and ash I know within 20 miles of me and nothing, though some have found blacks nearby. Just wait til this cold snap is over and it warms up around here. It's gonna be good.

    Good luck to all.
     
  7. I love morels but don't know where I would look to find them. I assume you start outdoors.....:tounge_out:

    That's a great place to start then find a woods with Elm, Ash, Tulip Poplar and sometimes young Maple and old Birch. Look carefully in circles around these trees when the temps are 75 highs and 55 lows for a few days in a row. Move on to next tree of these types repeat rinse and repeat...ohh that's part laundry. Just repeat and rinse them off when you get home.

    Around this neck of the woods we find them around sycamores. Very corner of Southwest Missouri
