TR - can you expand on your innoculation method...that is using a piece of cake to innoculate a jar? how exactly do you do it and how does it work?

In answer to innoculating jars: Anything that can be shaken is best. In the recent past I have used Rye/Vermiculite in a 2:1 ratio. This time I filled the jars up about 3/4 full with sterilized horse dung. I small chunk of cake (approx. 1/2" x 1/2") was broken off and stuck into the pressure cooked jars (after cooling of course). About every 2 days I give the jar a gentle shake to move the chunk around. On the rye jars, in my previous attempt, They colonized in 7 days. Use the colonized rye to innoculate compost or dung. In the case of the horse dung, this was only done 2 days ago. I am trying to see if the mycelium will easily move onto the dung and colonize. In doing this, I can see if it is going to be a waste of my jars before I break them up and mix them with the dung. It usually takes the mycelium a few days to realize that the new substance in there is edible. Once that happens, it moves throught the new substrate fast!
