Question for an experienced composter
    #600609 - 04/06/02 02:36 PM (22 years, 19 days ago)

My first compost pile has done well and I have 3 large containers colonizing fast.
I left the remaining finished compost in a pile outside in my shed.
After about 5 days I checked the pile and there was an unknown whispy mycelium growing and many buttons everywhere. I even found one fully grown mushroom in the middle.
My question is if I lay out the compost real thin and allow it to dry out, and later when I am ready to use it, can I pasteurize it and it will still be useable, or is it ruined?
Will the unknown mushroom mycelium use up all of the nutrients?
Has anyone had this problem before?

Just leave your compost pile... as a pile. Drying it out will defeat the composting process. Your compost is natually teaming with bacteria, insects etc... that is part of the composting/decaying process. If it is out doors, it is always possible it will pick up some type of mushroom spores that could flourish... since your growing anyway, I would be waiting to see whats coming up in the pile... you just never know :smile: might be real interesting.
If you need some of the compost for a more controlled "experiment" the pasturizing process will eliminate any mushrooms, mycellium, or spores it might contain. So your compost is fine.

Have fun.
