I live in Northwest Pennsylvania, and so far the spring has been fairly chilly and dry. I've gone out mushroom hunting a few times already and found absolutely nothing, which kind of surprises me.
Last year I found morels in several spots of my mother's 52 acre property, but I don't remember exactly when it was that I found them. Am I too late? Or is it possible the cold weather has kept them from fruiting thus far?
Only the first signs of morels have shown up in Massachusetts.
So you're probably not too late. It's a late start here for the spring. So that's my best guess, but we've had constant rainfall here on the coast, IDK waht it's like for you inland. THey are still finding lots in Michigan, so I would imagine, you should too. Morel patches don't fruit every year, so you need to check several places each year, having one patch or a few patches is not enough. Chnaces are if you had a strong fruiting one year, next year won't be so good.
