Hello friends? I've gotten my hands on some wine cap inoculated wood chips. Not sure if it would be OK to plant them outside now (zone 7) or not. However, I have a greenhouse. I thought about building a portable bed and starting them in the greenhouse and putting them out in the spring. Would love to know what you guys think.

I think either way would probably work, but the greenhouse would be more likely.

It is a little late for starting outdoors reliably--they may work, but they may start too slow and get out-competed by local strains or mold.

I would put them in the greenhouse and then in the spring you can use it as inoculant for the outdoor beds. It should be ready to divide by then.
