The Almonds are “planted!”

This last week we got the Almond Agaricus in the ground. We brought in a big load of compost and filled up the beds on the south side of the Almond House.

Yesterday we made our plan then folks got busy! That would be Cyle, our Production Lead, David, our current WWOOFer, and Megan, our new Picker/Packer.

We needed one bag of spawn per nine square feet. They marked grids out in the soil and set the bags out.

Each block of spawn was broken up into chunks and placed to fill up each marked out area. 

All the spawn was buried in the compost as they went along.
