Puffballs are one of my very favorite mushrooms and send up their fruting bodies in the fall. Had plenty of local rain when it was needed but not a single puffball. They are so delicious. Crazy year for lots of organisms. I buy walnuts for Hammons and last year i bought 72 tons. This year, 3 tons and holding. NO walnuts in MO this year! Of course I knew cause I watched the trees this spring in full bloom the week it rained cats and dogs all over mo.
Anyone finding any puffballs?? Never had a year of my 60 that I don't remember eating morels and little bluegills in the spring and puffballs and deer or squirrel in the fall. Darn this climate!! All Gore's fault! He invented climate change and the internet. And both are kicking our butts! haha
Haven't seen a puff ball in several years. Walnuts here have lost all their leaves but the web worms are just hatching, will they survive? Whats Hammond paying this year? Might find a hundredweight where usually find a pickup load.
Larger often is just thick hull and sometimes less nut. Where I sometimes have 3-400 # in my yard this year produced less than 50# No leaves on walnuts for about three weeks now and today I saw the first web worms; what will they eat?

farmnhunter: If you want to avoid feline, you can't use any meat or fish item or scent. Try a piece of black licorish covered by dairy feed, or lucky charms or corn/koolaid (mix 1 qt whole corn with a package of grape koolaid)
