Hi. Pictured is part of my wine cap mushroom bed. A bed that never produced a mushroom. I’ve had discussions here about how fast wine cap mycelium turn raw materials into compost. That certainly happened in this case. Now I want to do it for free. I have false turkey tail mushrooms on nearly all fallen or cut hardwoods. The beech tree I cut in March for lions mane is also covered. Crown tip coral and stinkhorn take care of my softer wood.
My plan: start dropping chunks of established mycelial wood into piles of chips. I may mix and match to see what works the fastest.
