Fri 18 getting a few 10lb lots central ks to Topeka. Mostly smaller. Date wise, this would seem to be a normal year-last 2 weeks of April and 1st 2 weeks of may, things dont look right in the timbers,maybe due to the recent freezes and frosts.Freeze damage to morels mostly cosmetic limited to black tops on what was up. Weekend rain and warm next week will tell the story. Today,Sat. and Sun paying a exrta $2/lb upcharge for working the weekend.. $24/lb

10pm 420 things went from bad to worse all afternoon. Few 10lb finds-25lb top-mostly eastern ks hwy 24 and South. All from river bottom or recent rain. 2-4in tans nice. Most sellers say they left as much burnt up as they picked-especially South. Heard alot of had trouble finding enough for a mess. Dry most areas If the rains flush em or NE & IA come in probably 20 next week. If not 30 real quick. Already record high prices.
4.24 2nd day of over 500 lbs from KS alone-all areas. Rain should finish it off with the big yellows and maybe everyone will finally get a bag full. Getting alot from NE & IA and as we "front run" the season pretty much this is probably the last post here for the year. We will still service KS till they get big and buggy. Strong demand and good prices for good quality.
