So I bought some mushroom "stuff". They call it spawn, but hey a rose by any name right? Anyway, living in so much dense shade has me capitulating to growing conditions. As I align gardening beds and so forth to the plantings, it occured to me that I am really missing a great opportunity to have a kitchen mushroom patch as I enjoy a kitchen garden. So I bought a kit for oyster mushrooms on a whim. This should be educational, never having attempted to intentionally do anything except compost organic materials. I will be interested to learn what is possible outdoors around here, and plan on having the patch near the bbq pit for convenient access to the steak maker.
We grow magic squirrels here. I have taken away a handful already this year yet they refill their ranks. They will chew anything, even my equipment and gutters. This could be an unforseen problem.I personally love Shiitake which has a much more intense flavour. As for oyster mushroom, there was a man soaking his spawned stuff in ?? some chemical rather than boiling the whole thing. Very interesting. I would say just try morel. I have seen a youtube Australian growing morel and the mushrooms just sprang up like mushrooms. Amazing cheap food!
I once tried truffle inoculated hazel trees. In the end, no truffle and hazel nuts had been eaten by squirrels before I could say hello! There were so many rodents that I got rid of the trees.
