I'm thinking it's not going to be good.

Actually, what I'm more worried about is the lack of moisture here in SW Michigan again. Things are D-R-Y! No Honies or Hens anywhere that I've found, and I've been looking quite a bit. I was into them big time by this time last year.

We didn't get any of the rain but I did get an answer to my question about whats gonna happen to the mushrooms with it being so warm and dry--------today after work I stopped at one of my favorite wooded areas just to take a walk and being a creature of habit I put a knive and a plastic bag in my back pocket and good thing I did I got maybe 100 yards into the woods and I spotted a nice chicken just cut enough for tonights dinner and kept on walking ---enjoying just a nice stroll in the woods and what do I see HONEYS HONEYS AND MORE HONEYS so I start cutting some and the mosquitos start to swarm and attack ....I have shorts on and no bug spray so I did a quick cut and run will go back tomorrow with pants and alot of bug spray to get more......... I'll post a picture later tonight of todays finds

Redundant, I know, but rain is needed here as it has been all year. The woods did awaken within the past few weeks with some fungi, but the last I checked, everything was dry as you all mentioned. No puffballs, no Cinnabars......a couple of hens so far in a low area. Some real nice Hericium last week. Soy bean fields in this area look terrible. Looks like they are combining weeds.

Mary, honies in the button stage are the best tasting of the shrooms growth in my opinion, they don't have that slimey feeling as the mature caps have, plus you can beat the bugs to em quicker,mike

Doug,

I haven't seen a single hen this year yet. And I have looked hard!

Its cloudy here, it spit a little bit in the morning. But it does look like rain may be coming. And, I think we are done with 85-90 degree days.

They are all going to come at once, in my opinion. Like last year, I will have them stacked in my garage!
