Hello all,
I'm Yew4Ea's girlfriend. I had a question about azurescens. We gathered some from a nice patch and left many behind for future harvesting. I was wondering how long a time between harvests is reasonable. If we only harvested 50% of what is there leaving pins and middle aged caps how long should we give the patch to regenerate. Also what percentage of harvesting can be done safely with out destroying the patch?

Blessed be
And it harm none.. do as thou wilt.

It takes about 2 weeks to go from tiny pin to mature cap depending on temperature. Small well developed mushrooms are probably at peak harvest stage after a week. They are fairly persistant mushrooms and remain standing weeks after they have past their prime.

You can't destroy the patch by picking all the mushrooms. If you think you are the only ones picking a favorite patch, you might consider adding a fair amount of fresh wood chips to the site. It will make the azures fruit in droves next year. The patches need new wood periodically to keep fruiting. A patch will only persist naturally for about three years before it exhausts all of the available resources. They do well on the riversides because new wood is deposited on the rivers edge in times of flooding.
