I’ve checked my “gray” patch two days in a row now. Nothing yet. It’s plenty wet but the wind & temp are problems. Looking at the forecast I figure Saturday will be warm enough to get them going. Sunday will be the first haul. Montgomery county here btw.

Sunday is the day... I’ve got a good feeling about it. 73 tomorrow, 77 Sunday ... they’re ripe to pop.

The grays I’m finding so far are drying out fast. Unless we get some rain (and a lot less wind) it’s going to be a “check every night and cut em as soon as you find them” kind-of year.

We’re at around 30 at this point. The rain went north of us so we’ll continue to check daily and cut right away. Typically we let them grow a day or two but they’re drying up too fast this year. We did water a few and put a gallon jar over one of the bigger ones. This works pretty well as long as it’s not in the sun... jar in the sun = puddle of mush :)

put a white 5 gallon bucket over them willy. put something under one edge to let a little air in and spritz them with a little water daily. We grew some big ones in my dad's yard on an ash one year. Full sun.
