Outdoor Magic Mushroom Patches, Season 2013, Ready for the Madness?
Posted 11 July 2013 - 08:32 AM
Its rained some 16-18 days STRAIGHT, something that hasnt happened in my
area since the 1800s.... lol
BUT anyways, since the patches are placed ABOVE GROUND and not buried any
depth at all into the ground, they have survived the heavy ass rains we have been
receiving lately. they are flourishing pretty intensely.
SUPER white mycelium has ripped through 100% of the composted manure.
with my patches going now, i have started to try something.
I have a patch fruiting now, i just harvested some goodies, after i harvested I put a
top dressing over top the entire patch. Probably 1/4inch thick, 1/2inch max in some spots.
Im seeing if the mycelium will expand more and just retreat from the base or core of the
patch and start spreading OUTWARD to the new top dressing I put on it.
I have a good feeling it will workout just fine and might be able to keep the patches going
ALLLLL SEASON long. I dont expect them to survive the winter though, but hey never know.
for when winter season comes, im going to pay a nice layer of compost over top of some of the patches.
Might get some of the myc to survive.... just maybe, if it does then it should be able to be spread in
Notes on the azures.
The azures are RIPPING up those wood chips. Im about to soak some more chips and add them to the patch.
See if the azure stretch up a little bit and grab onto the newly added chips, i dont see why they wouldnt, but
never know :)

Hello all, to those following this thread who are savy in the garden and have that engineering/inginuity spark--What do you all think of wicking beds for Wood lovers. (Im not sure of the tollerences for wood lovers but im sure that all mushrooms need heavier moisture requirements, and a constant supply of readily available moisture seems to be something worth exploiting no?) for those who do not know a wicking bed Google ;) I also have some radical ideas about ligning the shore of a nitrogin rich algae pond with a modified wicking setup to wick moisture out of the pond to the beds. ) I know a lot of ideas all at once but whose willing to have at it?
You might be able to do some interesting things maximizing/capturing evapotranspiration
