Black morels started emerging in Southern Vancouver Island shortly before
April 5th.  My new 16 square foot cultivated patch, inoculated in November,
has produced 5 large morels and 2 small ones so far.  Funny thing- the 
fruiting was around the edges, particularly where the grass at the edge 
plant roots and some Morchella spp.-  I was wondering if anyone else 
with cultivated morels has noticed a correlation between fruiting and 
presence ograsses?   -RSW
