Alrightie Guys and Gals, went for it this weekend and Work is done. 10 more Blocks.... to the Party!
2 Beech Clam
2 Reishi (Finished)
2 LM (Heat tolerant)
2 Bears Head
2 Pink Oyster
I like to be completely upfront with my grows, as I don't mind criticism or just being honest, I used to load up 4 blocks with 6 quarts of water, but lately, it's a bit TOO much. The last 3 or 4 runs I've went 5.5 quarts, and it's absolutely GOLDEN. I've always ran 6 quarts of water to 20 cups of pellets with bran, but I squeezed the sub before loading and it's perfect, no dribble, but holds form. Not that I have any block issues, other than slightly slower colonization, but Noticing issues and fixing them is always an adaptation situation. It's just like anything else, get complacent and take it for granted you've made triple digit blocks, and BOOM... something arises and it's evaluation and correction at that stage. Anyway, really happy with the blocks lately, and much easier to mix to boot. Crazy 16oz of water can change EVERYTHING. All good, I have the analytical eye... I'm ON It.
I did drop the other 2 Pink Oyster Blocks in the FC, made a few slices on the top of the bags. I should see some PIN action in 5-7 Days. These are the slower(wetish) blocks so I went with multiple Slices to get what I'm getting the first flush in case it decides to go backwards on me. A few spots here and there didn't colonize so always worried it won't make more than a flush. Time will Reveal.
The newest addition to the neighborhood is:
All showing initial growth and were NOC'd up just under 2 days Ago. I'm excited for the Conifer Coral and King Blue as these are NEW to me. And of course, KO, my favorite tasting mushroom, and is a Giver, easily get
3-5 Flushes depending on size of flushes. Truly a GREAT One!
The CotW Logs are just doing there thing, look GREAT and I Can't WAIT. Grow On My Cultivating Compadres.
