Well snow today and sleet, but I went out for a hike to one of my hot spots (Not so hot today) and found 73. All under about 5-6 old apple trees. I searched numerous dead elm, some popular and ash trees on the way there and back, but nothing.
They were easy to find as they were setting there shivering in the cold. Some of the tops were a little black...perhaps frost bite??
Found 191 last friday. Conditions were very very dry and the weeds were 8" high making it very tough. Not gonna be a banner year here even though its early. Gonna go out this weekend again and see if the little precip helped things this past week
After some weekend rain showers i was hoping it would get some morels popping. Headed out last night only to find that the ground was still pretty dry. I know its well known to hit south facing slopes but they just seem way to dry to me. I decided what the heck i will head over the hill to the north side and what a surprise. It wasnt nearly as dry and was rewarded with the first weighable pick this year!
