mixture for outdoor summer method
    #1613346 - 06/06/03 12:36 AM (17 years, 8 months ago)

i plan on using pounds of spawn for an outdoor summer method. i am planning on using composted cow manure, Timothy hay (bedding for little animails 7.50 for 3 lbs) and leaf compost i picked up at a composting center. I will use water cyrstals at the bottom of the hole with the mixture of the above ingredient, spawn, and then the mixture again. NO LAYERS OF ANY INGREDIENTS IN THE MIXTURE.. JUST A MIXTURE OF HAY, COW MANURE AND LEAF COMPOST. what do you think?

I say...dont mix in the leaf compost, throw it overtop to help keep in humidity, just a thin layer. And...id use more than 3lb's of hay if your using pounds of spawn. Also, a tarp, or cardboard, or plastic sheeting overtop.

GO OUTSIDE.

Sounds good. If you throw in the leaf compost, keep in mind that the mixture will be a bit on the acidic side, so you might want to compensate a bit to achieve a pH of somewhere near 7 (or above it, as this might help keeping some contams out).

alot of folks don't get very good results from 'timothy hay',
it's got alfalfa in it, i think, so i'd recommend just plain straw instead.
what are you using for spawn ?
grains can become a target for bugs, slugs, birds and critters outdoors so use as little as you can and still get the job done.
