After a stuttering start off an on in the cool August week which triggered the earliest flush of hens, none of my wildlife areas have produced any agaricus or meadow mushrooms. Some scraps from years past took hold and a flush came up under the pine in my apartments, some monsters with 6 inch stems, about 10 days ago. still nothing elsewhere. Plenty of rain, check, cool temps, check fall oysters fruiting , check. This makes no sense unless they are waiting until December this year. A friend in Cincy is still finding fresh hens and I have an army of shaggy manes around my apartmens to keep me interested, just strange.
Harvested pounds and pounds of frozen oysters last weekend with shaggies still coming on. After this warm up snd rain, pre snowstorm I fully expect to be shoveling my way to harvest more oysters this weekend!
