Well Old timbuktu has finally struck gold in franklin county! I’ve found 20 here 10 there, twos and threes in places, but first time for the mother load!! 85 one day and 65 today! both finds all under one tree. The shroom gods have finally smiled on me!! more to the truth is I’ve paid my dues in miles of walking and it’s paid off. total for me at nearly 200 for the season.
All found around dying elms. in densely covered areas, where undergrowth is limited by the thick cover of briars and tree cover. the soil is richly black and elms are in the early stages of dying. just starting to slip their bark. on inclined ground near streams where humidity is higher from near by streams. Seasons done here in central Ohio. You’ll still found them up and with the rain they’ll still be fresh, but they’re quickly starting to dry out and rot if not found soon! the big find from today had many that were 5, 6 days old, some 7 to 10 days and older, but NONE were so far gone that they weren’t worth picking!! Gotta catch em soon though…good to hear from you all!! check you next season!!
