Keep us updated to further flushes.
What have the temps been like outside recently?

Over-all, the temps have been 50s-60s except for a one week heatwave in low 90s..
I would suggest ,that if your outdoor patch is in a place where wet spells are rather brief,
is to cover the surface with a material that limits moisture loss but still allows a bit of air exchange..It should also not cause any solar heat to accumulate...
This would only be applied in the heart of the fruiting season to stimulate primordia and then removed when pins become visible..Ridged foam board might be a good choice..
I will try this method again with me Ps. Subs in the fall..

This little tub was created entirely with stem butts from last years crop..
