Clayton - if want some swamp milkweed seed (Asclepias incarnata), brother, I got a few billion to "loan out"... Seems our acorn crops were bust too! I couldn't have picked a bushel of acorns if I wanted to from all my oaks combined this fall. I found some willow oaks in KC that were used for landscaping and, man, I clocked an hour or so just to get handful of sinkers...I'll say that pin and black oaks are the exception to this year's dramatic swing from last season's mast boom to this falls bust.. We experienced a bit of a natural disaster this week. Good buddy and I were bowhunting the rut Mon-Tues and during a lunch break I took this pic of a direct seeded pin oak while showing him the prop... One day later, the perfect (fire)storm hit when +30mph sustained winds, 2 months of essentially zero precipitation, and a 5 day old bonfire started a grass fire that covered 3 sections. Thankfully, no structures were damaged but fire smoked some MDC bareroots and bunch of my trees started in pioneer pots in our native prairie stand I was restoring to oak savanna. Fire also reached another 4 acre native prairie oak savanna site of mine that I'd direct seeded acorns last March. Mother Nature can be a fickle fickle gal..... Pic taken by my folks as they were forced to evacuate their casa: My 3 way hybrid oaks, called Concordias (SWO, Chinkapin, and Dwarf Chinkapin), I purchased from MDC as bareroots 1.5 years ago... They looked like this last spring: Tree cages are 4' tall to give you perspective: This is all that was left Wed night when I arrived to farm..
