On a cold wet day it seemed like a perfect time to check the Azure beds. The first bed is teaming with mycelium on the surface but there was no sign of pins to be found. This bed was made with a syringe from a sponsor marked Azure noc.

The second bed wasn't far away so I went to check it to. This bed is made from an Azure spores I got of Waylitjim eons ago. Thanks a million again by the way for that ! :bow:

As I scanned the bed I noticed the first pin ! There is was , and then another. I was giddy with excitement as I shifted the leaves around looking for more signs of life.

Unfortunately I have no camera until tomorrow but rest assured i'll be taking lots of pictures. It feels like such an amazing honor to have this species coming up at the same time as the P. Cyans and the Friscosa's. They make a formidable team !

I'll post some nice pics tomorrow.

Blessings on the Azures & thanks again to Waylitjim.

Sweet, I was just looking in my "Psilocybin Mushrooms of the World" book yesterday, and was thinking how cool it would be to go up to Oregon and hunt for some. Blessings on yours.:dance:

I'll get them pics ASAP. My main priority was to batten down the hatches with plastic greenhouses over the beds. Its mixed snow and rain today and it might get really cold tonight.

Under the Cyans plastic it looks great. Lots of half pins have turned to mature fruits. I had to give the plastic over it a re-adjustment because it was sagging.

I covered the Azure beds just in case they freeze solid or get a couple inches of snow on them.

Today was very miserable with wet snow , cold temps near zero and winds. I spent the day securing the beds with greenhouse plastic draped over bent maple branches.

Everything is battened down and where possible pooling of rain is avoided. Things look quite good under the plastic in all the beds. The Azures may not need a greenhouse but for all I know there may be three inches of snow tonight.

Without further ado here's some pics of the first Azures to come up. Again i'd like to give a heart-felt high five and thank you to Waylitjim for guidance and jedi tools.

This is the first time i've ever seen this species in person.
