1st time great success; Harvest Time???
    #1631366 - 06/13/03 03:02 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)

My cousin's neigbor wants to first thank everyone for all the quick and informative answers to past questions. This is his first time and he has had great success. No contams. (He used 50/50 mix; ramsey's vermiculite seal; and the oven tek to innoculate 1/2 pint jars which he kept at 81deg F and just followed all the directions and then cased with jiffy's.)

The question: He has MANY little babies (edible mushrooms of course). A few are over 2 inches tall (over 1/2 inch wide caps) and the veils have just broken. He read that the best time for harvest is when the veil breaks and then to harvest ALL at roughly the same time. But he doesn't want to harvest just yet because he wants all those little ones (3 dozen at 1/4 inch to 1/2 inch tall) to mature more. When is the best time to harvest when they are all at different sizes???

Its up to you. You should at least get the ones whose veil is broken. The little ones you could leave or pick as well. I would avoid having the big ones spread spores all over the place, so pick those. The little ones... to pick or not to pick, that is the question :-) It wont hurt to let them grow.

You dont have to harvest all of them at the same time. I believe they are more potient if you harvest them before the veils open. Usually when you wait for the veils to open you are gonna print them. You can wait until the caps become completley flat or inside out umbrella shape, if you want to print them and thats about the longest you can leave them before you have to harvest. Good Luck and I hope that answered your question. :grin:

wait for the spores to start a droppin,
get a print from your biggest and baddest shrooms,
then pick the rest of the mature ones
(you can leave the smaller ones to mature)
