This was made up by mixing 1 quart of rye, spawned to a small amount of unpasteurized straw right in the ground.
I put some grass clippings over top and watered when dry.
This was started 4 weeks ago.
A small amount of beer in can that was cup in half was set out to trap the slugs.
Love the ease of outdoor patches!

I love growing in the great outdoors too , its so
much easier to let Mother Nature do her work
than it is to reproduce Mother Nature indoors .

I was wondering, did you compact the straw in any way or just sort of mix it all up and leave it?

It was compacted as much as possible, but it does spring back up a bit.
It's pretty solid right now.

YESSS!! freakin sweet Rev. same native foliage too. hope my foafs turns out as well as yours. its been 2 weeks. Spots look almost identical too! Except a wall not a fence w/ a leaky outdoor spicket(only leaks when turning off and on), so it self waters. keep it commin I Love IT! oh yes, did you water just enough to keep the casing moist? and were the grass clippings fresh green or dry brown?

The clippings were fresh when I put them on, and I watered thoroughly every 2-3 days without rain.
That patch is pretty shaded but it does get about 2 hours of late afternoon sun.
Thanks for the props:)

awesome. thats almost exactly the steps my foafs goin. You truly inspire! Ever try UN- PC'd WBS outside instead of straw? Like for example--- 1 colonizd crumbled BR cake, into hole with WBS,mixed and layered, then cased or leaves, grass, 50/50 ,whatever?

I think you'd end up with birds not mushrooms.
You'll need to colonize the WBS first, and use it as spawn.
Good luck!

All I did here was dug a hole, put a small straw nugget that had already flushed twice in the hole and covered it with some of the extracted dirt.
Watered when it looked dry.
Simple as that.

these are easy 5 minute jobs that could be placed in parks all over the city or good out of town areas. i could think of hundreds of areas within walking distance of my house i could do this in. thanx for the reminding me of this path and inspiring with such great looking results.

what would be the best type of ground to plant in to provide a continuation for multiple seasons? possible growth of the mycellium into surrounding areas. or is that not really as possible with cubensis as it is with wood lovers.
