    Nice hen veronica your dirty looks about as dryers as ours. Went out for a short walk this morning didn't see nothing. Going back to the spot that's produced the last two weekends tomorrow morning hopefully something around.

    Those are indeed hens, and nice ones at that. Watch it for Mister Michael Rogers though. He picks all he sees including ones that small. No respect for nature or mushrooms imho. Just in it for the glory. He even picked stumps I had left to seed. Greed is a bad thing when you sacrifice sustainable picking for photos of your trunk full of mushrooms.

    You can only eat so many, I always leave one or two hens untouched by every good tree

    LOL let's not get crazy! :)

    I'm in St. Louis and it's hard to get out, so I need to plan well. I just don't want to go spend my time when the season isn't hopping in my area!
