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. I made the amateur mistake of cutting off the entire fruiting section – it could have yielded more had I been patient. Here’s the next TeePee. 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.
