How do I learn to do that! I am continually in awe with our connection to nature and its blessings. I would like to know how to install a bed and then add spore to get the same results. I obviously havent read everything yet but am seriously interested in building outdoor beds. which direction to begin. I thought I would like to start with the ossip astoria, should I begin with agar, LC, or straight to grain? If it will take on agar, that would be prefferable to me so I can isolate. I'm just missing a bunch of the technical info for cultivation. what is the best wood chip or mix of chips and in what percentages, stuff like that. Thanx in advance to all who take their time out to help teach , I thank you all...

Are they still under the plastic sheets,


They have been under plastic on and off. It warmed up a bit and I took the covers off to allow some rain to fall on them. As mentioned I live high in the mountains and the overnight temp can plummet easily below zero , so I have to be very careful. I'm about to harvest a moderate flush and cover the beds as the air smells of snow.

Are the snales leaving them alone ?


Ya Space , so far the Azures have been snail-free. They do seem to love the Cyans though. Haven't really seen them do any damage , almost seems like they are drinking more than feeding.

How do I learn to do that!


I started out with this awesome thread. I probably read it 100 times before I got to work ...

The beauty of woodlovers is that you can get a few species going and the requirements are the same. They all fruit at different times so the harvests are staggered.

It's magikally fantastic to see any fruits come from any outdoor project. Even watching the mycelium for a year or 3 was fun ...

I can't help but notice that I would have had an infinitely larger fruiting if I had followed instructions with bed preparation. For instance I put to much soil on the craterous surface of the bed and that slipped through the cracks and after watering , creating a thickish layer of soil under the surface.

It would have been much better to do layers of chips / straw / potting soil , with the top nice and flat so it can support a thin soil layer. As it stands I have a fairly thick layer of what was straw mulch and is now overlayed surface.

Not to worry though. This is woodlovers so they love to be disturbed and spread. Now I can peel back the bed and make it a little thinner and layer it the way I want to using the readily available spawn at hand. This will set the bed back but when it recovers it will explode with growth.

Never the less a little Azures goes a long way ! Any harvest at all is probably enough magik for a persons yearly needs ... till next fall.

north oregon coast maybe. new to me.


Thanks TCO that's it for sure. Haven't seen any pins in the "NOC" bed yet , but i'm not giving up. Regardless of what happens in that bed i'm going to expand it and layer it a bit better.

I like to try and double each bed's size by expanding them in the fall. It's worth the time to do the bed extensions properly so that there may be a chance it will fruit nicely the next fall and thereafter.

Here are the Azures on Remembrance Day. I harvested the big one to print and kept the stalk for cloning.

The snow is melting due to some unseasonably warm January weather. Its well above zero for a couple weeks or more and the woodlovers beds are thawing out. I can actually see the surface again after having 2 feet of snow on them before.

At the very least this will give me a second chance to expands the beds and even possibly make some new ones.

If it gets any warmer the Azures might start fruiting again ... where's that plastic sheet ? , hehe.

Haven't got a chance to eat the Azures yet. Started with the P. Cyans , fresh & dry and then the Friscosa's , then combination of the two. Next is an all Azure trip test.
