Glad I got that out of my system

I am coming in from the woods after my first "excursion" of the season. Nothing yet. I was actually surprised how little undergrowth is out after this mild winter. It will be another week or so before the first blacks are up.

I finally got internet at home for the first time in over a year - no more suffering through McDonald's gosh-awful French roast coffee just to get online! So I should be back on this board more frequently!👍

We had some snow and cold weather a couple of weeks ago, which slowed a lot of growth down in the woods in SW MI. I looked at photos from a year ago, and ramps were much more advanced last year at this time compared to this year.

Re: Glad I got that out of my system

I see more and more people are starting to find them right now. Still all small and even some small grays. Last year it was April 12th for me. 3 days after we got 6" of snow and then had a warm up. I'm heading out for the first time on Thursday. We shall see.

I agree there is much less foliage than I expected to see. I am sure some spots with perfect conditions have produced a few around here, but the woods don't look ready to gimme my bag of shrooms yet.

I'm guessing here by Scott in NW Ohio we should see some blacks by Wednesday next week. Not slot of undergrowth, but in Ohio our main problem is usually it's all knee high before the shrooms start. Maybe with the warm rain this week and 60 highs and 40's lows starting Saturday through next week , should need a few days of that to produce in some Sandy soil spots.
