Mushrooms

I wanted to expand on the mushrooms. We went to the Mother Earth News Fair last year. They had workshops all weekend and we learned so much. We took a class on Shittake mushroom growing and the simplicity of it was right up our alley. Buy spawn, drill holes in logs, pound spawn pegs into logs then wait. It doesn’t get any easier than that to grow food. We bought 750 Shittake plugs and 200 oyester plugs. If you get their kit they send the wax the drill bit and some labeling markers. Sounds easy right? Well in a year we will let you know if it works out……patience …….. Patience……

while I wait I will make sure they don’t get dried out so I’ve rigged some soaker hoses over the stack just in case the dry SC summer tries to ruin my efforts. Guess we’ll see.
