So, a while back I posted a mental note in somebody's thread about dumping some fully colonized grain into the middle of a composted straw bale and hoping for the best.
Well, I'm ready to do it. Got some grain to extract some mycellium from and the rest can be devoted to the experiment.
I'm wondering if the highly nitrogenized composted bale might be a too-rich-in-nitrogen environment for the liking of the mycellium - like maybe it will get killed outright.
So, since straw and composted poop work so well together it seems that the poop compost were mixed with the colonized grain and plugged into the middle of the bale it might sweeten the equation a bit and make a more hospitable environment for further mycellium development.
Anybody have more thoughts? or care to critique this idea?
