They are just starting. Was out last night and found 11 yellows around old dead apple trees in Dekalb co. I know these trees always produce first in my area. They were all 2-3" tall. In another week or two these same trees will have jumbos.
Went back to the apple trees after 12 days and they didn't produce as well this year as in past but I did find one that was nearly the size of a half gallon jug. The ash and elms in this area had also flushed in the past week. Found 14 total which isn't a lot but they were all large mature yellows. This leads me to believe that this coming weekend will be near the end in the northeast. Need to head into mid-Mich. to stay on the fresh ones. Good luck to all.
CW, Mushroom Mary and I planned to go out today but I have been on medication for an throat/lung problem so we will try the Angola area next weekend hoping its not too late. I assume that you were pretty Jazzed with a half gallon milk jug sized yellow. Good luck to all.
Hard to believe, but I found some fresh ones today In Butler area. Lots of growth out there, but almost every dead elm I was finding some. Most were too far gone, Worth a shot to get out one more time. I have a lot more areas to check. I filled a potato sack in a few hours, Unfortanely, I think a handful I hoped to salvage are too far gone. Dang! If I only would have found these several days to a week ago
Found my first hen of the woods today in a city park, right under a sitting bench. Ha! It wasn't there a week ago and is already volleyball size. these cool nights and all of the morning dew will bring them on early.
