That is the most wonderful outdoor patch I've ever seen
Penis Envy strain makes it even better

Thanks Sideshow. Don't get me wrong, I am stoked the PEs (anything really) came up nicely but I was a wee bit disappointed that the GTs did not turn out like [user]seee[/user] 's grow here http://mycotopia.net...p-outout003.jpg

Temps have been a topped out at 85-90 with lows in the mid to high 60s. Humidity seems to stay above 75% except during the heat of the day from lunch till dinner. Then it drops to ~40%.

Location could be considered "Temperate Zone 7" :reb:

That is a beautiful sight to behold! Outdoor takes the cake in my opinion, just let mother nature care for it!

Thanks! I appreciate that :)

This is inspiration to have beds made from one isolate. I am really interested in seeing what an isolate will do compared to these results.

That was from multispore? That makes it even more impressive. Isolates will almost always perform better, so you have much to look forward to.

Thanks for sharing your grow.

Couple pics of my 'backup' patch. As you can tell I have not been able to check it in several days but at least they dumped a ton of spores :headbang:

I have only found a couple of 1/2 eaten ones but for the most part they are left for me :D

Believe me, I'm gonna be all over these fields around here again and again on the hunt :lol:

Absolutely amazing dude youre really putting me to shame what country are you in and have you been experiencing any digging pests looking for spawn or eating fruits?
I'm in Canada and while Ive yielded about 2 oz dry at this point thats from 200 jars of coloniized rye grain spawn and about 1500 pounds of shit in 8 patches. Patches were made by scraping the surface, dumping half the substrate on the ground dumping the spawn on top, then the rest of the substrate. Some were cased immediately some later with verm peat grass seed n leaves. Things I wouldve done different is use kiddy pools with a hard mesh screen on top to keep bugs and critters out. Aside from countless slugs snails ants worms millipedes etc there are also critters that I suspect to be squirrels. They dig in the substrate for the rye grain and theyve also eaten and ripped up fruits. Most of the time they dont eat much or take it away, they leave ripped up shrooms on the ground. It seems that if the manure is cased with peat verm grass seed and leaves that they dont dig as much. After finding countless dig holes and grain on the surface I mixed some patches back up but that doesnt seem to have helped.
Things I would have done differently is use a container to keep nature out, use better substrate as I used bagged cow manure and maybe use a different kind of spawn as the rye grain attracted critters. Still it has been a very frustrating experience as some patches are 2-3 months old at this point producing virtually nothing. One patch had 48 quart jars worth of rye spawn not even spread out just a huge brick with manure above and below, this was spawned probably 3-4 weeks ago, cased with verm and peat 2 weeks ago and recently I dug up a small section and instead of myc it was like mushy rye grain. When I dug a section there a week or so before it was myc so I dunno what the hells going on all I know is if I used those 200 jars indoors 3 months ago when they were ready Id have a hell of a lot more than 2 oz
