    I let the last 2 bags with the old spawn/mycelium fruit, I knew what I would get... They started pinning 5 days ago (last weekend) Very disappointing to get mushrooms like this, but I know better now...hopefully, lol!

    Haha, I can try that but it seems like a lot of work for 'n mini harvest like that! I usually gave it to my cats to play with, they sniff it and pull stinky faces, lol

    Just an update...those strawlogs that did not want to do anything, the ones with the deformed fruits...I gave them to my dad for compost, he buried them outside in the garden. More than a month later we were curious to see if the earthworms liked it. When he opened it they looked just the way when he buried them. He decided to make a little tent thingamajig and cover them with straw and leaves...not very long and wow! That thing has given us so much of the most beautiful mushrooms and it's still going strong!
