I know its been pretty dry but there is always something. Anyone find that early cluster of Oyster mushrooms yet?

Morel season is coming soon!

Just got back from Texas! Morel season was so great last year, that the morels were non-existent down there. But we still had quite a few interesting finds! I'll post pictures soon!

Looked around Louisville on Sunday, didn't spot anything...feels like Morels should be out in what, 1-2 weeks time?

They should be around within the next 30 days but the lack of moisture may hinder things. Look under narrow leaved cottonwoods when the leaves just start to come out about an inch or two. I have a feeling they will be difficult to find this year if there are any.

What about in the stream area's around the Four mile canyon fire? Mushrooms usually love to sprout up after a fire right?

Black morels are typically associated with recent burn areas from foothills to subalpine around June or so near streams.

Yellow morels grow in the plains near streams with cottonwoods around the flood plain April - May.

Some years they are non existent. They are very difficult to spot since they both blend in with the stuff on the ground like leaves and pine cones.

Pleurotus are out! In the past few days we have found quite a few pounds of oyster mushrooms. I have also seen Coprinus comatus, the shaggy mane, in decent quantities around town as well. It is still too early for morels, but I have a feeling that the rain we have been getting is a sure sign of a good season this year. Nebraska is just getting their first morels as of this week, and Kansas has just started getting them as well. My guess is in two weeks they will be out. But get out there and find some Pleurotus! Best bet is along creeks where cottonwood has fallen and still has it's bark on it or freshly cut stumps in urban areas. Happy Spring out there!

Found in Boulder, Colorado - April 20th, 2011

P.S. jc, love the new text editor!

Nice find Gnomed. Oysters are always a great find. I'll be on the lookout.

boomers, start simple with studying the most common edibles we have around here and work your way up from there. Oysters, Boletes, Chantrelle, shaggy mane, etc.

5,5500-6,000' elevation Gnomed?

5,000-5,500' soil temp should read 49-53 degrees F. I bought a digital candy thermometer that is fairly accurate. We only found 16 or so... Still a little early and dry. We need rain!
