My first pins! - UPDATE- My first harvest!
    #11301252 - 10/22/09 07:28 PM (8 years, 2 days ago)

I woke up this morning and checked my cakes and it looked like there was no growth. I went to work and in the 9 hours I was gone 3 of my cakes started to pin! I almost missed them when I was misting but a tiny off color protrusion caught my eye. Upon farther examination I discovered pins! I almost couldn't believe they had sneaked up so quickly! Those elusive little buggers! I wanted to take some pictures but my camera wouldn't focus on the cake when I zoomed in. I'll definitely take some after they grow a little more so I can get a good shot to share with you guys. I'm very excited!  :dancer:

I want to thank the shoomery for all the information it provided me and all the wonderful people willing to give advice and share their experiences!  :thanx:


EDIT:

As promised, here are some childhood pictures of my kids. Sorry they are a little blurry. I just can't seem to get my camera to focus on the surface of the cake.


Overview of what I have in my FC. Five Cambodians and Five PESA. Two more PESEs are near full colonization and will be added to the FC in the coming week.




This is one of my Cambodian's. It looks like it has a decent pin set. I counted 17 so far and it looks like some more may be coming in!




Timmy wants to be a doctor when he grows up.



UPDATE:


Here are a couple of my cakes that are doing really well! They have some pretty bad bluing on the sides. I was away from the house for about 36 hours and I left a fan on in the room so they kind of dried out a little.

This one has a couple of fatties growing on top.








UPDATE-

I just harvested my first two cakes today! It came out to 102.7 grams wet. I can't wait to eat the very first batch of shrooms I've every grown with a couple of close friends. Here is a picture of my harvest, minus four caps that are being printed. I also took the two largest mushrooms on the largest cluster and cloned them using the cardboard cloning method.

Thanks to everyone that helped me along the way and a big thank you to the shroomery for hosting this wealth of knowledge.

Thanks botanisthype! That was exactly my piont. You wouldn't be able to tell anything from the pics. And what do I have to gain by lying to you 2cents? All I can do is wait til there is something the camera can focus on. But I can 100% assure you they are pins!:    :awesome:

quick question, i didnt want to make a post or anything. hoping someone could answer here.

does the grade of vermiculite that you roll the cakes in after dunking matter? is one preferred over the other?

I'm thinking of taking my last two PESA cakes and crumbling them into a bulk substrate. I have access to Black Kow composted manure. I think I'll give it a try!

Thanks guys! No harm done 2cents. And yeah CJCollin37 I used a shot gun FC and I used some of the now empty jars to elevate my FC off the table.

These two cakes are doing real good but the others aren't doing much at the moment.

This one has a couple of big ones on top....


and a nice little pin set on the bottom.


This was my first cake to pin.


Pretty strange looking looking mute!



You know, when I first got into this, all I wanted was the end product. But I really enjoyed the act of growing these things.  It's almost like I don't really care to eat them. I mean I will eat them, but now it's secondary.
