    Speaking of oaks, in my neck-of-the-woods, Southern Tier of New York,Steuben County, can’t find fresh acorns this year. I’ve read that it’s boon or bust and that they are biennial. How about you Matthew?

      The red oak group has acorns that mature in the fall after a second growing season, while the white oak group does it in one year. And there are definite “mast years” booms. This isn’t one of them.
