I am hoping that the weekend rain and some warmer weather will restart the finding of morels.
Barry Chapman of Hegewisch found these nickel-sized morels at the end of March.
It's been slow finding in the weeks since.
In fact, I am down to next to nothing for MOTW, the weekly celebration of morels found around Chicago. Generally I run MOTW in May on the Sunday outdoors page of the Sun-Times. This year I started on April 1, the earliest start with some faith readers would keep coming through even if cold and dry came back.
If you have a MOTW, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
