Hello amazing people :)
I have 6 Amazon PF cakes in a Poor Man's Pod. Only one of my cakes actually pinned (so far), and it only produced one mushroom (rather fatter than I expected it to be, about the same size as my thumb, maybe slightly bigger and fatter).
I think the veil just broke (just got back from a weekend out of town). Should I pick it? If so, should I twist and pull or use a (sterile) blade?

The veil is breaking so it's prime for picking.

Yeah pick that thing. You will probably get a few more for a second flush from it, that's what happens with mine sometimes, they get 1 shroom for the first flush, then the second has more. Keep going with it, you'll have enough for a few trips at least. Good luck.
