Okay Una, gogogogogogogogogogogogogogogo!!!!!
You are having a nice pictorial, 45 mins of work? I suppose making that azure bed doesn't go as fast as making this!!

Good luck with it!

I'm glad to report that we have germination! (of the grass seed that is). Tiny green sprouts are now covering the entire bed. I wonder how long it takes before the entire bed is covered (i'm more into growing mushrooms than growing grass :wink:).

On the sides of the beds you can see the mycelium popping though, my god, that bohemica mycelium is rhizomorphic, very thich threads that are alomst elastic. It has started to consume the larger wood chunks as well.
