Still snow in yard and 12 feet of the white stuff at 6000 feet might be awhile before we see any.

still to early here our lilacs haven't even got leaves april 9th is the erliest for me as well! I don't eat them either I like them but they kill my stomach im like a goose after eating just one! I can and do eat tame ones without any hitchs! in the early 90s me and a few friends used to go out and pick several pounds a day the best day ever was 96 lbs that's a 55 gallon drum full! I picked a 36 quart cooler full one mourning turkey hunting! that was a fluke year we was picking them around dead walnuts that had died from mark twain lake filling up! I don't expect to ever see any thing like that again!

Good! Glade you know they can get bigger. I tell everyone that says they find little ones to let them grow. 99.99% of the time ai get the same answers. Mushrooms dont grow and if I dnt pick them someone else will. I dont eat them and have not hunted em in a few years but this year i am going to get some.

We did pick some smaller one that were at public land by a road, lot of tracks where people had been hunting them since the rains. On all the private land I let them grow. I hope it turns out to be a decent year I am hearing a lot of people are finding 50 to 80 at a time. We had to hunt hard and go to 2 diffent county's to get the 148 we got. They just aren't up well at my spots most are too small.

I have never seen one grow any bigger than when I first found it.. I have them growing in the pine trees right beside my house. I find them in the morning. I have let them go and measured them. I have not touched them for up to five days and they never get any bigger. I have covered them in pine needles to simulate darkness, or not being completely out of the ground. Once again, they never got any bigger. I know people say they will continue to grow but I have never seen one grow any bigger than what it was when I found it, and I have let them go for several days.. I check and monitor them daily and I know when a new one pops up so it is not like it was growing bigger and I didn't see it.Maybe you have different morals than I have, but mine pop up and they are done growing.

They definitely grow. Some times takes a couple of weeks but the little grays are immature yellows. Just came in from walking around the garden. The asparagus broke through today, still to early for it too. It will most likely freeze off this week.

My little grays have remained little grays. They have never become yellows.
I have let them go so long that they have dried up and withered, and they never grew.
