Unusually early show from my cyanescens patch.
In the photos you will see a large white object in the background, which is an abandoned ceramic plant pot. It seems to have perhaps created a super micro climate which has prompted pinning? It is fully glazed and filled with water which might promote humidity and slightly lower temps??
If that is what has happened it is interesting that there are areas of pins which are some way away from the pot.
I don't really know how it all works, but as this bed is from a multi-spore innoculation, perhaps this is a distinct mycelium that is pinning early, while the rest of the quite large patch remains predictably dormant.
Unfortunately as it is still quite warm, there are still a lot of slugs about, and the little fuckers do like to eat the caps off the pins.
Due to the unusual timing I wont be surprised if a considerable proportion of these guys abhort. You can see by the blue caps that a number have already checked out early. Ho-hum.
