First outdoor grow, with pics (in progress) * 1
    #16206757 - 05/09/12 10:08 PM (9 years, 5 months ago)

I thought i would post a real time experience of my outdoor grow,
so maybe people can get a better idea of what to do off my mistakes and successes.



May 9,2012
Temp 10c/50f  mostly cloudy some wind, a little brisk id say

This is my mushrooms space


Here is the area of choice, last years "graveyard"



first i built a box with no lid or bottom





then i made two loose layers of cardboard


got a bucket of hot water with whatever coffee was left from today also
kept both my layers of cardboard separate ans a strainer to keep them separate
and got a weight.


put in one stack of cardboard, then strainer to act as spacer, then the second stack of cardboard
then the weight, let soak for an hour or two


i had eleven petris of Argentina that i wasent using anymore,


added them to magic bullet with a little warm water


and i got a kinda apple sauce like substance


dug a hole for the box about 5 inches deep so about 2 inches were above soil level
added in first layer of cardboard then dumped the mycelium sauce all over it


then more cardboard


lastly i covered it with a dark garbage bag with some holes just sliced threw, and a container ontop of that
witch i plan on using as a humidity dome for the growing part,
i also put some borax and jam in some sort of small vessel so any ants will eat this,
bring back to there colony and kill the colony, later i plan to add copper pipe around the box
to keep slugs out.


borax and jam, i added alittle maple syrup but honey works also ,
theres recipes all over the internet for this idea,



tomorrow ill have my spawn bag preparation.






May 10,2012
Temp 10c/50f cloudy, really windy

heres what i did last night before bed

filled a bucket with hot water


added bird seed


went to bed

woke up and gathered my supplies this morning


strained then rinsed untell water rain clear


feel if its ready, no sticking grain is a good thing
finger in


finger out, good to go


as you can see i never boiled or added anything, never did any witchery to it

prepared to seal bags for autoclave


sealed them


another view


well those were cooking away, i prepared to test the lc i will be using for this

the lc date


the lc , looks promising


for the recipe
i asked  TranscendingLife for some help on it , i dident want to use a full agar broth
what i ended up using was one cup water, .7 light malt and .5 agar agar

got my 5 test jars and supplies ready for glovebox


proof


results 11 lc syringes and 5 test jars, the original get labed for re test
as soon as these jars show the ok then bags will be inoculated, jars will later
be uses for g2g in another grow


better view of syringe


as soon as bags come out of autoclave they get wrapped at the top with medical tape to prevent
any air leak, i will show how to inoculate these when the time comes


another view


May 12,2012
Temp 18c/64f lightly overcast, but a really nice day, spring is starting to heat up

so here we are in our adventure when we see if the lc will give us good or bad surprises
today i woke up to a good surprise, got some growth
from the 5 test jars






a few more days and the grain bags will be done balancing the moisture out, and the jars should
have some solid growth to support viable or not.
tomorrow i will check on the outdoor bed to see if any mycelium is growing on the cardboard,

and if anyone wants to know A3-3 is Argentina 3rd sector, 3rd generation, 

May 13,2012
Temp 22c/71f  not a cloud in the sky , slight cool breeze, really bright beautiful
day, right now i got the case of the fucking wonderfuls

so i went to check on the cardboard in the bottom of the box, and there was no growth
i kinda thought there would be something, but nothing, there was a few bugs crawling around but mostly
spiders, no ants were seen ,cardboard was still wet that should be a good sign of a good spot




i checked the jars today and they showed great progress, (not in the same order as before)



so i decided on inoculating the bags,
i had eight 4 quart bags and one 2 quart bag, i will show how i did the first two

loaded my box




first i sprayed down my gloves with iso, and cleared the tape off from around the syringe


then i cleaned down the syringe i was using to inoculate


slide out "filter" syringe and insert lc syringe, and dispense lc


switch out lc syringe for the "filter" syringe again and retape


done


i will show progress of the bags when they show something worth showing.

May 15,2012
Temp 26c/79f ,fucking gorgeous out today, had to work but took an hour to enjoy the weather

both bags show some growth
i have them labelled, so we can follow progress



also this is what i have going
one bag with 2 quarts wbs
and 8 bags with 3 quarts wbs
(two bags for this project, 4 bags for an akira type bin outdoors, two bags for indoor
and the two quart bag will be a g2g from my next bags)


also installed copper pipe around bed, that should keep out slugs



to be continued

May 20,2012
Temp 18c/63f off and sun so it kept getting warm then cold

bag one is doing pretty good theres good mycelium on the back also


bag two is going pretty slow, i might have to sub in another bag if it stays slow


all 5 jars are complete and awaiting something to do


ill eather add them to coir to spawn to the bed when i add the spawn and straw,
or add them to a few bags to spend this shit up

May 26,2012
Temp 23c/73f got fairly warm, i broke a sweat at work today
the weather has been going strong but rapidly changing from humid to not,
raining to not, hot and sunny then cold, its been normal temperature around here but that
being said normal temps here are all over the place

the bags are looking good and are around the same % done,
time for a mix


after there mix


the boring part is almost over,
i havent done anything with the test jars yet, one of my chinchillas has gotten a
fur fungus and ive been stressed battling it, im kinda scared the rest of the heard will get it
but theres no negative effects on health , just there fur.

June 3-4,2012
Temp 24c/74f  , yesterday was very sunny and hot, today is slightly cooler with cloud cover

first i used the shroomerys spawn calculator to get a rough idea of what i wanted


decided on 20 gallons of substrate, so using a 5 gallon bucket i used 3 parts slightly composting
straw and 1 part my "secrete" mix, i also only used 6 quarts spawn





did a quick pasteurization to kill off bugs


spawn ready


everything in


mixed


topped off with peat


covered with the sacks


im going to put some soil over this and seed with a mix of grass and flowers i think ,
or atleast flowers,


June 13,2012
Temp 28c/80f  , the weather has been pretty funny lately
raining then hot, then cloudy over and over again, witch is good.
for kicks ill watch the weather app on my phone, every 10 minutes it says something totally different


so what i did was pick out some seeds and some grass seed, this will keep moisture close to the ground,
and double as a herb garden , 


here is the progress after i took off the burlap sacks


lightly seeded and covered with more peat and soil


then i threw poppy seeds all over my yard :datass:

You put your petris in warm water to make apple sauce like liquid.  Daa fu?  Good luck and hoping to see progress soon :smile:

Also, if it isn't too hard, remember to keep track of the temperature

I plan on it, i've got a clone on agar right now, as soon as it i get it transferred once more to make sure its clean i'm get get these WBS jars going, do one or 2 G2G's then spawn to a tub of manure indoors and use that to spawn to some more manure outdoors. Pretty excited, will be first outdoor grow.
