Now I feel like $hit (First time fruit picking)
    #638263 - 05/20/02 07:31 PM (14 years, 8 months ago)

After picking the first flush from 2 cakes, I feel like I ruined them. The first cake I did was the Puerto Rican, it had alot of abhorts and growth on the bottom. I had to handle this cake I feel a bit too much to get it as clean as I could. I had my rubber gloves on and that made it more tricky to get the abhorts off, because they would get wet, and as I tried to grab it would slip off. I never dropped the cake, but I cant help feeling I may have overdone it. The PESA cake was much more simpler, the shrooms came off in bunches, and did not have many abhorts at all. Just alot of spores on the other cakes because I waited a bit longer than I should of.
I hope I am worrying over nothing, this is the first flush ever for me. I am not dunking these cakes this time because they had alot of water in them still.
I did get 3 dehydrator trays full and a handful of abhorts which I am drying as well.

Next time just wash your hands first. Forget the gloves.

No, not at all. Just paranoid of contams. I figured it would be for the best to wear gloves, I could not find any how to or how not to for picking. Live and learn...

All the FAQs will tell you that by the time you reaching fruiting there's no serious worry of contamination if you`re clean.
Just use your head, dunk your hands in a bleach solution.
Sorted
or boil your hands for 45 min in a pot.

then again that might not work

Or you can pressure cook your hands at 15 PSI for 45-60 minutes.

You can buy those Clorox disinfectant wipes at your local grocer, I use them to wipe my hands after I wash em. I have had no problems with contams yet. (I ain't knockin on wood either!)

Oh, BTW... After you are done with doing whatever it is you are doing with your mushrooms... Definetely smoke a fat blunt of danks to the head!!!

(makes the process more worthwhile)

i just take some isotorpic (spelling) alchol, and pour a bit in my hand, then rub em together, i dont do it over a sink or anything, i just do it right there on the spot, cause you dont need that much. no prob with contams yet. just clean your hands nice b4 u USE them, thats the best way to look at it. gloves are a hassle too, i really only use them, when im picking up cow shit
peace
