    C0305E74-C79A-4E51-BCEB-81EC84149CAC.jpeg One last check on the half free patch yielded another 11 bringing the total for that small patch to 607. Crazy! This patch was probably only 440 sq ft. Never seen anything like it. Also found 16 small yellow and 1 small grey. About half of all I picked today were getting brittle stems. Added 1 more found behind my house next to a poplar.

    Hard to find them when they are covered up with 3 inches of snow.

    Will the freeze kill off what’s already up tonight?? Didn’t know what it might do, thought?

    Found 1 small bunch of 6 yellows today and came across a dead ash that had just recently flushed oysters. Picked a little over 3 Lbs.

    Been an off year for me all the way around. What few times I went it was find one here, walk a ways and find another, no bending down and pickin a dozen in the same little area. I'm not giving up yet tho! Next week the temps are gonna be back around normal. If I don't find another I'm thankful to get a mess or two anyways. I've seen hot dry years I went without..

    I was starting to feel like the season is getting close to being over the past couple of days. Then I go out today and find 3 fresh blacks and a lone little yellow nearby. No way we should be seeing any fresh blacks when we’re finding the mature big yellows. I know there will be those isolated micro climates that will produce at odd times but I do think we’re close to it being the last week.

    Last week for me lol. We’ve ate all we want, gave a lot away to fam and friends. I’m sure certain parts of the state will still see some popping but my regular spots are pretty spored out as I am. Been a good season and thankful. No complaints.
