Weather says highs in the 60s lows in the 40s for next 2 weeks. Grass not nearly ready for mowing but what's the possibility of of April flush? Has anyone ever picked in April?
A couple days of rain here Sunday and Monday certainly can not hurt. Still seems early according to the calendar, but we know it’s more about the soil temps. Fingers crossed.

NYnome as long as they don't freeze I think they'll be OK maybe grow slower. There calling for 1 ta 3 inches of snow here Wednesday with a low of 27. Little worried but I believe most are still hidden under leaf litter. Never know maybe with the way things are might get a extended season. I'll report what happens to the ones that I found yesterday since there next to the house.
That happened here last year. I am a little higher elevation. We got a late freeze and we found very few. Most of the ones we did find were pretty badly scared and burned on the top from the frost.
Good luck out there.

Went out to check a bunch of new ground here in Albany. I found a ton of perfect Elm’s with no luck. Until I almost got back to the car. 20 that I could see. Most not bigger than the first knuckle on my pinky. They have at least another week and a half to go. But at least I have some new PG!!! Always exciting. Also found this great Elm, got closer and realized this wasn’t the bumper flush I was looking for. I haven’t looked them up yet. The entire tree was surrounded by them. Anyone know what they are?

After more than a decade I finally found my first dying elm with a payout. Much to the likes of our sages, Geo and Hobler. I have never passed and Apple or elm in the woods with out a look. However, I have never found more than a few under either. In Otsego County my primary bounty comes from white ash. Today in Albany County, the elm put out. I too had my little good luck charm with me. We pull 147 off one tree. We left, 30 more fresh ones that we could see. Would have left more to grow, but it was a very public and blatant spot. Which I guess is a good sign that no one else is really searching in that area because there were plenty of large ones to spot. The tree itself appeared to be very new to its downward spiral. Very little bark sluffing off and still some green buds. Can’t wait to get back out and really explore that area this weekend!

Lol so true Geo
Lol.... I sure know I do by this time of year. I think I am done. Over all, 10lbs on the season with a few new PG’s. I really expected a lot more out of my old spots this year given the epic weather. But unfortunately, not quite as bountiful as I had hoped. Grateful to get out none the less! Chanterelles’ here we come!!!
