    What is causing the tops to be burnt? They still look great!

    Likely an old orchard, but I have found them on fence rows with cedar trees in the grass.
    I find most in the woods but that’s because I don’t have permission in any old orchards. Found a couple small ones this afternoon up in the mountain,we need another dose of rain. Saturday should be good

    Went out this afternoon in the blue ridge. Conditions seem dry. Seems to be early still. Hopefully this rain this weekend will bring them up.

    I found some up Big Stoney Creek. They were just coming up and I left all the small ones. Checked other spots on Wolf Creek and still nothing. Need a couple more days to be out good.

    Nice. I’ll probably be going Thursday. In Newport/Clover Hollow area. Hope they’ll be plentiful.
