March 2nd and we’ve eaten our first oyster mushroom harvest. Here are the before and after shots:
The next TeePee is coming out of the fridge today. The one that produced this yield is going back into the dark for the next round.

The longer time in the fridge (one additional week) has produced more fruiting bodies. This is all about patience, and a good test for me.
