Last year’s drought began in mid-July and lasted until Jan, and there has been little mushroom news. January was wet and March warmed up early, ramps came up and, fortunately, we never had the typical “late freeze”. As a result, or maybe as a reward for patience, the black morels started popping around April 1st. Yellows came later and lasted shorter as the daytime highs went to 80 degrees 5 days straight with no rain. Rain has returned this week (Apr 18) so maybe there are still some to be had. Here are a few pictures from April.
