azure winter survival
    #456761 - 11/13/01 08:10 AM (15 years, 1 month ago)

I've managed to create several nice azure beds with a nice crop (all for research purposes only). My climate is N.E. U.S.A. which has a rather harsh winter with frost extending several inches below the ground surface. I plan to gather some nice chips and mycelium and begin sterile innoculations indoors again. But, my question is can I possibly winter over my outdoor beds? A thick layer of leaves and hay perhaps? But if my cover is ample enough to protect from freeze and frost will my beds receive enough air or maintain too much moisture? All availible teks seem to be for maintaining beds in a less hostile clime where a simple cover of cardboard or addition of more chips ensures survival. Any suggestions?

Some people use tarps.

The freezing shouldn'tt hurt the mycellium. Although the winters are harsher in the east, freezing temps are no stranger to azure mycellium. It'll just go dormant like the mycellium of thousands of other mushrooms this time of the year.
