    Found 7 greys in the front yard.
    First time we've found greys there.
    We'll often find a few yellows there later in the year but not greys.
    the best to ya

    Daughter and a couple of friends went out sunday and found 5 pounds.
    They were a mix of greys and yellows.
    She said they are going again this week but finals are this week too.
    Thinking back I would much rather go mushroom hunting than take finals too. lol
    have a good one

    I love looking for mushrooms but can not stand to eat them. We have found about 15 or so growing in the yard this year. This is the first time that we have found mushrooms in our yard in the 10 years that we have lived here. The kids really get excited about finding them and giving them to my parents.

    The wife has been finding a few here and there. Although it's not alot of mushrooms, we have had 2 messes so far. I think they are starting to turn on this week. I have a cousin who has found 30lbs this year, so they are there, just have to find them. Later Andy
