Re: in which month fertile horsetails are found?


 In Ottawa, early June, I saw lots of (Ostrich) fiddleheads for sale on
the market. Some two weeks later, in Moosonee (52N) they were well over
their best time and it wasn't too easy to find enough of them to enrich
our freeze-dried camping meals... Yet mid-June the season is proceeding
very fast: When whe past Algonquin for the second time I noticed several
plants that were visibly more advanced in their development then one week
earlier.

  Betty,
  I live in Ottawa, Canada. My back yard is full of  Ostrich ferns that
  are mostly over six feet tall. I have noticed sensitive ferns for the first
  time along my driveway. We have had so much rain this spring that everything
  is green green.
  Best wishes,
  Phil Youngman

  Seems a little  late to me, but here in NW Indiana, we had a very
  mild, slow spring, and maybe there too? Are you having a good time in Canada? 
  Seeing lots of ferns?

    I was surprised to find coning Field Horsetails (E. arvense) as late as
    June 22nd in the very South of Canada (latitude: 45 degrees North), 
    being

  used to seeing them the first week of April (last of March, 

    nowadays). Is

  this the normal time in the US/Canadian border region?
