casing health after flush
    #417570 - 10/08/01 04:26 AM (15 years, 2 months ago)

A FOAF has finally harvested first PR flush from casing. Harvested half this morning and remainder in evening. Thanks to all who contributed answers to previous q's. The flush consisted of about 60 kids from a single 10 x 12 tray (two quarts of rye). About 30 kids were full size (6" ) and the other 30 were half size (3-4"). Not bad.

My FOAF did notice a significant change in casing between this morning and this evening. It looked fine this morn, but this evening it looks battered, bruised, shrunken and there is alot of greyish tinge to the surface - could this be cobweb mold attacking that quickly after first harvet? Up till now my FOAF had only one contaminated 1/2 pint jar, so not too familiar with contams.

Anyway, on close inspection there also seemed to be alot of tiny aborts practically all over the remaining surface. My FOAF tried to remove most of them. Then covered with some more coco fiber and put back in a separate chamber from other (unpinned) tray, in case that was cobweb mold. If it was mold, will it rise to top of new casing pretty quick? My FOAF is not upset if the casing is ruined, probably should have added the extra casing layer right after morning harvest eh?

Answering some of my own question, only to generate another. Come to think of it, many of those little aborts may not have been aborts after all, they may have been primordia that became black and slick from spores dropped from taller neigbors. Hmm..

Were those primordia likely to have been the second flush? Did my FOAF inadvertently pull out the second flush in its infancy? Or do most people clean off the surface of all primordia (aborted or not) after harvest?

if you knew for a fat they were aborts, pulling them was wise, however some strains perpetually flush. I would have left them for a day or two to see if there was any growth. Depending on how much you let your first crop mature, they could have well been just spores on them.
