Finally the outdoor mushroom [Cubensis] beds and planters videos is here! Time had to pass, things had to happen naturally and we had to catch them on video of course.
Starting with jars of oats that we turned into grain spawn we set about with horse manure and potting compost to make self sustaining (if we’ve done it right) outdoor mushroom beds, the dream is that these fruit for a few years before needing fed new materials to consume to keep the whole process going, get watching the video and see the whole process.
00:00. One hundred and seven jars of spawn on the floor, 107 jars ….
00:20. Attention to the substrate
00:42. Getting the subs properly sieved and mixed is crucial
01:50. The substrate is ready for use, lets take a look at it.
02:12. Time to layer up the ‘lasagne tek’ tub.
02:55. Time to make a tub with a different tek.
04:00. All set now and ready to place in their outdoor positions
04:30. The ‘spent’ monotub resting place, momma nature knows what to do with it.
04:50. The slugs and snails love them too.
05:00. The poly tunnel
05:37. Holy Shiiiiit the outdoor planters are fruiting, momma nature kicks ass.
05:50. All hail side pins.
06:35. Checking on the pots in the poly tunnel.
06:50. Big chunky PE fruits popping.
07:00. Massive fruits popping up, this was not meant to happen until spring.
07:20. Time to pluck out some big chunky mushrooms
