I was expecting to hear that you were doing better than ever Clay. Interesting that your spots aren't doing as well as usual. Were there dying trees there that no longer are producing? I've had a number of places that one year might produce a 100 and then nothing the next year. Usually that has happened next to dying elms or fallen cotton-woods. I've been putting my scraps and pieces next to an ash tree in my back yard for years and am still waiting for it to produce. I could go for some in my back yard since the closest I've found more than 2 of the big yellows is 60 miles away. I have a Lions Club meeting in Harrison on Sat so I hope to find some on the way up or back to Stuttgart. Good luck!
