I am always up for a challenge. Mushrooms are the newest endeavor. Pinetree Seeds had mushroom plugs of all kinds. I chose Maitake as it seemed suited for our climate. Next weekend we will go out and find some oak logs. The directions include drilling holes in the logs, gently tapping in the plugs, cover with beeswax, and then be patient. That will probably be the hardest part.
I have heard most get what they invested in the product. I love hunting for them so this would be nice to have some close by. In Italy a mushroom hunter is a valued member of a town. Have you ever eaten this variety? Hope you are feeling better, last I heard from you, you were under the weather.ReplyDelete
that's neat it will be interesting to see how it all turns out. Did they say how long it takes to grow mushrooms?ReplyDelete
How fun!! We tried mushroom growing, but never plugs. I am excited to see how this works.ReplyDelete
We really enjoyed growing our own and eating them.
I've never heard of that. Will be interesting to see how they turn out!ReplyDelete
I love your adventures! Keep us posted. This is a very cool undertaking!ReplyDelete
Could we possibly be sisters? I was just exploring the possibility of growing mushrooms too. We mainly have elm trees that are down and so I think I'm going to try Pearl Oyster 'shrooms. I found some good info and plugs here: http://www.fungi.com/home.html.ReplyDelete
I'll have to go look up Pinetree Seeds. I wish you all the best!
