    I still haven't found anything. I'm going to check a few more spots this weekend. I still have about 130 acres to comb through here then I'll move to my other farm. Its only 65 acres but its a great place. We'll see. My forsythia is blooming and my neighbor daffodils are up. Hopefully I come across something.

    Gotcha. We’re South of Lexington and things are just a little early here. Never found many blacks in the area, but gray and yellow show up often. Good luck this year. I’ll be waiting on the redbuds I guess.

    Have helped burn a plant bed back before they gassed them. Helped plant and gas them, pulled plants later then set and walked behind plugging the misses.. Hoed, topped and oiled(Had a 8 inch spot of skin get "burnt" by the oil when we would put a gallon jug on our belt and use a funnel to fill joy bottles to oil with..... Killed a few of the tobacco worms.... Cut, spiked, dropped sticks, loaded it on side loaders, regular scaffold wagons and a flat bed, picked up leaves... Handed it up into the barn and worked on various tiers... Shoveled sawdust and slabs to build a fire.... Took it down, carried into the stripping shed and piled it in front of the classers then moved it to the strippers and hauled the stalks out while boxing leaf, 2nds, lugs and green.... Loaded it on wagons... Later in February, I worked at one of the floors one year...

    Came back from 6 weeks of ROTC advanced camp and 3 weeks of Airborne School to find out I had been turned down for student loans that year for "making too much money".... (Made $525 for 9 weeks in 1987)Cut tobacco at $6 an hour for 2 weeks or so to get enough money to pay for 1/3rd of tuition on the deferred payments schedule.... Do I qualify?

    I was out near Ky Lake looking at property that I'm listing... I looked around a bit and my ten year streak of "No Morels" continues..

    Matures is what I am finding them under. Also right around the trunks of cut off sassafrass. State came in and trimmed roadside brush a couple years ago and every sassafrass stump has a black beside it. Never seen that before.

    Very interesting about your finds around the sassafras. All of my black finds are in mature poplar woods also.

    I picked all of the morels I found today. 12 total including the 6 I found earlier this week and let them grow a little. I decided to go ahead and pick them since I may not be able to get back to those patches for a few days. 3 or 4 of these were barely poking out from under the leaves. Almost all of the 12 would not have been found if I had just been walking through the woods. I literally walked up to specific patches that I’ve picked for years, kneeled close to the ground and just panned in all directions. It’s still to early to find many due to the small size.
