Yeah rodents would be an issue where I'm at, my yard is full of ground squirrel and mole trails, so I will have to figure some way to keep em out. Thanks for all the links guys.

I have not seen Arathu around for a LONG time. It sucks when people just fall off the radar. I promise you all if anything ever happens to me, my wife has access to all my accounts and can at least let you all know what happened. Hate to lose long term friends with no word or hint about why.

Last year we had deer getting into the garden and eat all my tiny cucumbers and decapitated my tomatoes, they eat the wild mushrooms that grow in the yard, there are always deer-mouth shaped bites taken out, so I'm thinking they will try to get at the cubes too, I'll have to put up a little alarm with string and pop cans`, that seemed to help last year.

Hey all, went for a walk down in the woods today, checking on morels, still nothing.

Anyhow, I grabbed some young ramps and scooped a couple of last year's Ganoderma applanatum, artist conk. Also found a very nice patch of em on a downed tree, this year's growth, gonna scoop em up in the fall.

Hey coopdog, glad to see another southsounder around here, you mentioned cottonwood, have you grown anything on it? I'm sure oysters would do well, morels also because it is a poplar. I got more cottonwood than alder. I chipped 11 alder beds for Cyans, but wont see anything till fall. I caved in and nocked my first indoor cubs last week. Should tide me over until fall. I did all kinds of different things with the outdoor beds, so far rye berries spread on wet egg crate topped with alder chips and straw are running like crazy. Colonized sawdust and chips seem to take longer to spread out. Finally, I cut a buttload of 1'' thick alder rounds 3'' - 4" dia. and made a huge bed of cardboard, sawdust/chip spawn and laid the rounds on top of that, dusted it with sandy soil and then covered with straw. I'm hoping the alder rounds will keep producing without having to add chips for a few years. The rain we are getting is just what we need. I have 8 lions mane totems standing upright with paper leaf bags over each one, the bags are supposed to dissolve naturally over the summer while holding in moisture. we shall see. Oh, I did 2 liquid culture patches, but rye or wheat berries are a sure bet. Not sure if the LC is doing what it should be doing...kind of a fragile way of doing things outdoors in my opinion. I've done about all I can do, now just gotta keep things wet through another hot summer. Oh yeah, also got a small tub full of egg crate squares with cyan mycelium eating them in the closet...gotta figure out where to put those. not a bad prep season for one multispore syringe. PS. I have to overcome a certain amount of paranoia to post some of this...doesnt anybody ever worry about this? What about those members that "just disappear" Lol.

This came up in my graveyard recently. Where I throw my spent tubs and contaminated grows. These fruits seemed very dense in comparison to those grown inside. 

 

This is cubensis var Cambodian. By far the biggest I have ever seen in my limited mycological experience.

I decided to try a technique for clean spore collection from outdoor fruits. This was introduced to me by another mycotopiate.
 
 
Upside down placement of the cap under a steriled polystyrene petri plate. Unfortunately, no spores were collected. It's a static charge thing that attracts spores to the plate. I printed a companion fruit from the same outdoor flush so I'm not sure what happened but I ended up with no spore from it.

20190420 074427
 
However, wanting to save its genetics, I managed to swab a few spores from its gills after carefully breaking it apart. I then plated samples of a few sorts. Sp is the spores rubbed onto the plate. C is pieces of the cotton swab embedded into the agar. T is tissue samples.

And I still have the 50 gm stem in the fridge that I'll save for further samples if these don't grow.

Thanks, I will look at my contaminated failures as not such a big deal and look forward to contributing to the graveyard. It may have to be a seasonal thing. I will now start looking for the optimal season for outdoor disposal. I'm guessing that I need to wait until the last frost but don't want it too hot. 

 

Another thing I did was to throw an inverted 20 qt tub over those fruits. There were some others coming up but they dried out. I really recommend the tub or perhaps a sheet of plastic over the area would preserve the moisture. It made a difference.

While I was out of town my Garden Giants started flushing. That was the good news. I noc’d up the bed a few short seeming months back, and wasn’t expecting anything until fall. Something, I’m guessing the skunk I’ve been seeing as of late, got into them, however, and ate a few huge ass caps. So I come back to half eaten mushrooms, and lots of digging in my bed. I might clone one or two, but god damn skunks, man. Watch out for those bastards.
