Found 10 more... and one Half Free

Well, I took my son out tonight- to a spot where I had collected some greys on Monday.. thinking I wouldnt find anything more than the one I had left for him (there was a small one on Monday that I decided to leave for him to find). To my amazement, we ended up finding 9 new ones, which had popped up since Monday. Given the cold temperatures and lack of precipitation, I didnt expect that at all. We also found one half-free.. as well as a few mini-micros around one of our dead-elm sections. Give us some warm weather and rain... and they will be popping up everywhere

Hi Glen- same spot as before- by a couple of old apple trees that were very productive last year. It is actually on high-ground- about 30' above a stream (the stream is really low right now- we do need rain badly). Could be holding some moisture in the ground right by those trees I suppose- but it's definitely not a creek bottom or anything. In fact, I'm not finding anything in the creek bottoms yet where I usually do. Who knows... Odd season for sure. Good luck. I'm hoping next week we will turn the corner. We're supposed to get rain this weekend with a little warmer tems.

Forrest area- not apple grove. They are just two really old apple trees about 20 feet or so apart- in a mixed forrest. Most limbs are dead. There are a couple other apple trees that look to be in similar condition in same set of woods- that I have never seen produce- so who knows. I just happen to stumble on these a few years ago during peak white and they were loaded up.

Guess I'll have to get up early every day now.. or go out with a flashlight :) LOL. Good luck Glenn! Actually, that wasnt where I was-- but who knows, we may run into eachother at some point this year. Do you ever go down to Yankee Springs State Game Area? It's been years since I have-- always a ton of people- but a lot more ground to cover that us city-shroomers have.
