North Spore has been so patient & helpful in answering my myriad questions. I set up my first mushroom beds late in the spring (late April/ early May) & our first flush came in on 07/01 - and from that, we harvested about 1.5 lbs. Then, we got another flush a couple weeks later on 07/14 and again harvested about 1 lb. It's funny, it seems like natural rainfall triggers these flushes. I can't wait to see if we get any more this summer. I followed the instructions on how to set up an outdoor bed (used hay + oak pellets) & watered religiously. Great use of the shady areas in our yard and I'm especially excited to keep these beds fed year after year as perennials, if you will. :)
I have bought many sawdust spawn kits over the past couple years and they have all performed great. I got the blue oyster spawn and the bag was beautifully colonized with mycelium. Stored it for a week or so in the fridge till I got my bed set up. Once I added it to my bed it completely took off! Judging by the growth I should see a few mushrooms by the fall and then a great harvest by spring. If you are looking for a easy product to use that is aggressive and forgiving this is the one for you. The picture I added was a quick check on colonization only one week after I added the mycelium.
Purchased the bag of spawn after having fun with the boxes and am now attempting to grow a bigger outdoor crop. North Spore does a great job with video's and on-line support staff to explain all your questions. It has now been 3 weeks and awaiting blast-off. I live on Long Island and set up two separate area's to determine the best location for future attempts. Me and my daughter are now into mushroom growing. She is doing Reishi for medicinal purposes. I'll follow-up with a report once the they get going.
This was my first attempt at growing oysters in buckets and it was super successful. The spawn came in healthy and smelling lovely I used it to inoculate 4 buckets. The first flush was huge followed by another slightly smaller but still big flush. I would highly recommend I did this at the beginning of spring because it was still a little cold in NJ. The blue oysters were very meaty with a very long shelf life and typed delicious
