They are normal size bales, they just started to pin.

Are those really big bales or smallish pins?

Lmfao... I dream of pouring a giant slurry over the entire straw side of the hay loft!! Seeing people do entire bales makes me smile!!!

I got scolded one spring for inoculating too many bales when straw from local farmers was slim pickins and the price was up!!!

It is so much easier to grow them this way, aside from weighing in at over a hundred pounds when wet. You better make sure they are where you want them, or you will need a forklift to move them.

Are those bales resting on dirt, concrete, or something else?

OK thanks :-) I gather just in a sheltered spot. I'll give it a shot once summer ends :-). Are they wheat straw?

Would pouring an LC or slurry over a bale really get it to innoculate?

When spring comes I have LCs that are good but I have multiples which I'd like to just get rid of. I was thinking of pouring an Lc into a hole filled with a mix of straw, poo coir and verm, covering it and seeing what happens.

If I can just buy a bale and pour that would be amazing.

I was also thinking of buying a bag of cmc and just pouring the whole LC into it and letting it sit outside for spring. If the whole thing colonized I would bury it and case.

Would anything I described work?

I know that at the beginning of fall I threw an extra half pint of ATL#7 LC into a bag of Miracle grow, and it took off for the first 2 weeks until the weather got cold.

It would be best to use grain to inoculate. They just do better when grain is used.

Absolutely, I know this for a fact. I just want to know if its POSSIBLE.

I know my I'm going to dedicate a piece of yard for a sub graveyard. I want to know if there is ANY chance of making my "LC graveyard" successful? I mean even a 5% chance is worth trying for me.

I can tell you for an almost-fact that LC won't cut it, and I've tried several times - your experiences may vary.

 

Slurry could maybe work, but I think it'd contam with all those nutes sitting out with their myco-legs spread for every foreign invader ...

How do you handle insects and mice? They love mushrooms...

Have you tried using a pallet wrap around the bales to control water loss, keep the bales 'together', insects, and where the fruits develop? I'm considering a King Oyster pea straw bale. I'd be looking at keeping the fruits on the top :-).

I'd be using a broom to 'hold' the roll.

Hey One, how much spawn do you use for a square bale?

I'm getting some bales tomorrow :-)
