Checked on a couple of patches on my farm that I haven’t checked this season. Picked 4 in one patch and they were all mature, 1 didn’t survive the trip in the shroom bag. Picked 6 more in Jefferson on my way home.
Checked on a different area in Jefferson today where there are 2 patches that have been very dependable over the past few years. Had my knife in hand as I approached the best patch because I knew I’d be picking. Just had to disappointedly stick my knife back in my pocket. Nothing and the woods didn’t look ready there.
Picked another 16 very fresh blacks in Jefferson and 9 others in Hart that were showing some deterioration either from age or the freezing temps last week. I did find my 1st set of twins of the season.
I also checked several of my early patches and nothing yet. I done found several by this time last year, but that was also the earliest I ever found any. We supposed to get rain tonight and tomorrow so I'm hoping they be up in a few days here
