Testimonial of Outdoor tek
    #866506 - 09/06/02 06:31 AM (15 years, 22 days ago)

First off, please take note of my low number of posts. It's very low because the "SEARCH" function has answered every single question I have. Thank you to everybody for your previous posts.

Now to business. I read through Moe's Outdoor Tek, but like many other people on this board, a foaf lives in the hot sun of Arizona. I doubted that it could work due to the extreme heat and the current draught situation. The last two weeks have had a high ranging from 107-110 degrees. The low has varied from about 80-84 degrees. The typical humidity is in the single digits! This foaf thought that it would never work. With an overabundance of cakes (if there is such a thing), a mixture of grass clippings from the lawn (a hybrid bermuda grass called BOB sod), and steer manure, his outdoor patch was made. 4 fully colonized 1/2 pint cakes were used and added to the mix a la Moe Tek and placed in a very shaded area. The patch was burried about 4" underground, following the Moe's tek. He went out twice a day for a week and a half and watered the patch. With the temperature nearing 110, it seemed, as many others have surmised, that it couldn't be done. Well, for those of you who live in AZ, you know that it rained hard last night. When he woke in the morning, he expected to see nothing (as usual), and instead there were numerous pins forming EVERYWHERE. I forgot to mention that a cardboard box was place on top of the patch. I just thought some of you would be interested in this because the question has been asked about growing in the desert. It takes a lot more care and a good location for the patch, but it can work in the desert. The strain was B+. It was done as an experiment with no real expectation that it would work. If AZ were cooler and more humid, this tek would be almost maintenance free, but in AZ it still takes only minimal care with mother nature doing the rest. A foaf is looking into installing a misting system now.

Well done, Thanks for the testimonial. Even a bigger thanks for the use of the search function. I have found many answers there as well.

Good luck to you and keep us posted on harvest amounts, etc.
