Also, I planted the garden tomatoes, only this year I have covered the soil with black plastic to control weeds and retain warmth and moisture. Can't wait to see how this works!
I read that mycelium will continue to form as long as it has cellulose to consume, so I intend to transfer some of this batch to another vessel with sterilized corrugated and try to keep the process going.
The inoculated grain I purchased on eBay has been placed in used coffee grounds that I sterilized and vacuum sealed. For the fruiting stage I am simply using a pastry container from the supermarket.
When we went for ice cream last night we asked the girl at the counter for used coffee grounds, so I have another batch to process. At this rate the mushrooms will cost practically nothing at all to grow.
If this process works, no one will be more amazed than me!
