Mushroom update

When we set up the mushroom mounds we also did a wood ash
cold sterilized straw/wood chip bed in a plastic tote.

We got home from a trip yesterday and the King Stropharia mushrooms were fruiting.

I did experiment with adding a diluted PA blend as a substrate soaking mid-season.

Was not sure how the mushrooms would produce in a plastic container.

 Jim,

I use a 10% hardwood ash solution to soak the biomass for 24 hours.
