    How big is big enough for one to harvest? I'm just curious to see what everyone else does.. for depends on the condition but 2.5 -3" is minimum size (finger sized)

    For me it depends on access, if I can access them and nobody else can I leave smaller ones. If I'm hunting public I pick any size.

    I just found 6. They seem slightly past prime, but still good. It's really slow out there...

    I always clean mine before I put them in the fridge. I do a quick soak, just a minute or two, then use the hand sprayer on each one and shake as much water off as I can then set on a towel for an hour so. Then I put in a paper bag and lay damp paper towels over them. Then I redampen the paper towel as needed. They stay nice and fresh for about 2 weeks

    Below average weather is stunting things. Complete opposite from last May the 2nd warmest. We need some warmer average Temps and some sunshine to make things pop. C’mon mother nature help is out!

    Buddy photo bombed me, we had fun though. About 120+\- Found a couple really nice trees. I feel like southeast sides are about done by me. No work tomorrow, gonna let them bake until about 1 then I’m going to experiment away from southeast sides. Good luck everyone.

    There's always a way to haul your shrooms out of the woods. Even if you have to take off your pants!

    Had good success in Wabash County today. Just counted and paper bagged them. I don't wash them ever and use a normal grocery paper bag (roll up the top) with a damp paper towel inside and refrigerate them or store in the garage if temp allows. Works for me! My older brother (78) and I (72) can't go as good as we used to, but we got right at 200 that weighed just over 9lbs today. Mostly blondies and some greys. South and Southeast facing slopes. Many were in that plant that looks like a umbrella. We are hunting in hills and valleys. Most seem to be within 50 yards of the top. Prickly ash territory. No ticks yet.
