Off to a great start
About the only thing you could plant around here is rice.
I’ve got about 6 more good vegetable acres I can work up if need be. I’d say there will be a big shortage of potatoes soon. May Plant another 100lbs Friday.
Good move! I haven't checked, but I would say seed taters are probably gone from the stores around here. I'm glad I got mine early. I visited 3 grocery stores last week, 1 was out of taters, and people were filling buggies up with them in the other 2.
The last time this happened I noticed people stopped being picky about produce, especially maters. People wanted them by the bushel to can and were paying a small fortune to get em.
Things are happening pretty quick now with the Blue Oyster mushrooms even with the cooler days since they started fruiting. Blue Oysters are a cool weather variety and will produce in cool temps, but they produce faster if it's a little warmer. I expect growth to really speed up with the warm days ahead, and a harvest by the weekend or early next week if all goes well.
Gill formation started today.
Barney this mushroom thing is a really fascinating thread to me. Have to take my hat off again to you agin for the special work it takes to do this, with all the continual sterilization and monitoring and tending to minute detail .... I hope this turns out as well as it look s like it will.
It is for sure. One thing I didn't know before starting this venture was most of these cultures can be stored basically indefinitely. They could then be expanded on grain or sawdust to make spawn anytime needed in short order.
I took the liquid culture syringe, made some spawn on wheat, and inoculated a couple of bags of substrate to grow mushrooms. In the same time or even sooner I could have just as easily expanded the syringe of culture to make a thousand fruiting blocks or more!
The way you’re colonizing next grain with spawn from small piece of the old like a sour dough starter is flipping cool bro. I’ve been studying this some for awhile but glad you’re blazing the trail.
That makes a bunch
I'll weigh em when I pick in a day or two.
