    Wouldn't this be something that would take years for any color to develop deep inside these pieces?

    The natural method takes place over about a year or two.
    I am trying to jump start things. It remains to be seen if I am successful.

    Now would be good.
    I re-bagged everything and put them on a new pallet in a sunny spot.
    I will try to leave them alone for another few weeks.
    I left about 1/2 of the buckeye in a solid piece to allow it to run it's course the normal way.

    I figured you would say that. With something like this having it done in 6 mo. would seem right. But then I dropped out of Bio. and went to Chem.

    Time to check on the Buckeye

    Here I pulled the tarp off the Buckeye to see how it is doing.

    Pretty good looking on the outside.

    Cut up one of the smaller pieces to see what is inside. Finally some blue!

    Now I am covering it back up for another month or so. That way the blue can spread and get darker.
