Strange year. I did the work for 50# but barely got over 10# Central Iowa is down 3 inch rain for April/May and temp rain timing wasn't ideal. I lost a strong hitting area to dnr burning out dead cedar. Only one traditional spot hit well about 5# but spread out with one strong early flush and then a couple big yellows every other day for three weeks. Number of mushrooms way down but size amazing Pattern of earlier season continues. 20-45 years ago season was about 4/25 to 5/20 This year 4/15-5/11 the new decade average. That doesn't count the March 2012 season. Garlic mustard keeps expanding and screwing things up Creek banks and low slopes no more than a random big yellow. My and others behavior was not always great. Mushroom mentor passionately wants to help newbies. She had some basics but wasn't refined. Many people- including me- posted unhelpful comments. I apologize. Don't lose the passion! The whole trespassing thing created weirdness. Sg is a good man but pulled a little bit of a "the Donald" with his story. SG keep the passion and stop hiding you have good stories. I forgive you like many forgive Trump Pheasant backs and oysters galore. Less litter! Good news is I still was able to clear the smoke out of my lungs get back into shape and watch spring come again. I have enough frozen shrooms for Christmas and my wife still clears out the family schedule so I can do my thing. Here's to another spring in the woods. Respect the earth, respect our brothers (all humans are our brother) and go catch some fish. Remember keep it fun Gus!
