****UPDATE W/ PICS**** I'M IN LOVE, again!!! (Bulk vs. PF)
    #4255360 - 06/04/05 11:20 AM (11 years, 8 months ago)

Sorry for the blurry pics, sorry.. I didn't take a pre-harvest pic either.  But enjoy the following first few harvest shots of B+ on High Mountain Compost.  FIRST time bulk, FIRST time casing, FIRST time with grain and it's been alllll gravy baby!!  :wink: Yeeeeeeeeeeee HAW!

The first 3.  All had to be picked together.. as they were a cluster.  There are actually 4 there, 1 lil abort on the base of the huge one.  Guess she gave me an extra treat. 59.3 grams


34.1 wet grams! This is by far the largest mushie I've ever come upon.


There she is again. She's so sexy.  7 3/4 in long. Tallest one yet :stoned:


No hollowness either.  All meat.


The cap off of the large one measured 3 1/4 in. 


Have you fallen in love  :heart: :heart: :heart: :heart: :heart:


Sliced the lil' one just to check out the blue.  Impressed indeed.


These will be given a full 'examination' today.  :mushroom2:  Wish us luck

Thanks for all the help members, you know who you be.

Congratulations man! I plan on soaking my WBS tonight, then sterilizing tomorrow, etc.

By the way, that shroom on the scale actually weighs less since you have that prescription bottle on there too :smile:

By the way, if you put the bottle on the scale and zero it out and THEN put the mushie on.. you get the weight. Yes, it weighs that much.

Thanks for the great comments though. Follow Agar's grain soaking tek found every post of his (bottom).

why do you have gloves on? Are you allergic to the mushroom


--------------------
Stop experimenting half way through your first grow. Grow it to maturity, watch it, learn from it. Do this a few times then experiment with different ideas and figure out what works best for you.

No not allergic at all. I just like to pick with gloves because I don't like to get my dirty hands close to the casing. I find it also cuts down on bluing & bruising. After these pics I put them in a paper bag and chucked in the fridge for later consumption. As you can see in the 2nd to last pic, I do handle them with bare hands.

I hear you Sam. I always pick with gloves on. I usually wait until the caps are really opened and don't care for the adjacent mushrooms dropping spores on my hands.

Nice looking shrooms Sam. Congrats!  :smile:

Hey Sammy, way to go. Congrats  :thumbup: But I am curious, I see you reged almost three years ago, have over 1000 posts, and this is your first bulk and first casing, what have you been doing? This hobby is almost addictive, not eating them but growing them. I've only been here for three months and have already fruited casings and  three bulk poo casings(small ones though). Like I said, just curious. I see alot of people who have been on here for years and are just now doing first grows and such. Thought maybe you could tell me your story so I could have an idea of what could take someone so long to get involved in this wonderful hobby. Good Job and continued good luck.

Peace,Love,Happiness and Harmony.

I think the issue becomes that a typical large bulk grow can easily yield 10 pounds of mushrooms once you know what you are doing. That's a lot of mushrooms, even to give away to friends.

Yes, and what's that got to do with taking nearly three years to try a bulk grow, or even a casing. I can understand taking a break between grows, I was more interested with why it took three years to try it. Sorry if my question wasn't understandable.

Peace,Love,Happiness and Harmony.

Hippie.  The first couple years were filled full of PF jars.  I just never wanted to venture into the kingdom of bulk.  Now that I've made some tracks, I'm obsessed.  Pics below!!

Pre consumption sexy photo shoot


Largest shroom from above, sliced in 1/2 to see if it was hollow or not.  It ended up being NICE! IMO


Cap sliced in 1/2.




2'' cap.


Harvested about 80 wet grams already.  Some left


Some PF style musies on the LEFT, Horse Poo on the Right.  Those PF mushies are the large/average that I could get.. that's cracker dry.  The H-doo shroomies are smallish/average for the H Doo tray.  I'm not going back.

Way to go. Told you it's addictive,lol. Good Luck Sammy.
Here's my first bigger poo casing. 18" by 12"




It's not even done and I have one 4 times this size colonizing. Really is addictive. Like a fix waiting for that pinset,lol.
