TOPIC: TylerCounty Season in PA/WV + pics included

TylerCounty Season in PA/WV + pics included 2 years 2 months ago #36792

Hey fellas. Hope everyone did well today. We are experiencing quite a drought here in SW Pa and Northern WV. Nonetheless, I got out for about 4 hours this afternoon and got about 1/2 pound. Lots of dead and wilting plants. Made spotting them much more difficult. Also, I think I planted only about 6 or 7 seeds today from the plants I dug. Got a few nice four-prongs and saw very many two-prongs that should be ready in a few years. I'll post some pics later after they(and me)are all washed off. Good luck to all this season!

most plants here a few miles south of you were still green but that's probably because of the particular location I was in today, most other places are worse off, yes it is dry here to say the least, almost depressing

Nice start.., Congrats!
It's been pretty dry in my area too.
A few yellow and drooping already. Mostly still green though... It does look like it will be a shorter dig this fall though...

Nice looking root there TylerCo.

Especially like that nice ball root in the bottom right that forks into the two long feeder roots.
