    Hello everyone i am new to picking and this my first year in middle tn.
    I have been out 3 times and yesterday was my best picking yet. I found some that were 7 inches tall and about 25 blacks.
    Is there a rule of thumb on how long these shrooms will keep coming up. My neighbor says they will only be out for about a week and then it is done for the year. Everything I am reading says they could keep coming out for a month or so.
    Thanks for any help, my whole family is enjoying the snacks and I want to learn a bit more about the growing season to increase my success.

    Usually the season last 3 weeks and we're in the middle of the season now.
