My sister-in-law who used to forage for #mushrooms with her aunt in the forests of Ukraine told me that I should take a small knife with me and cut the mushroom stalks instead of pulling them up and disturbing the mycelium.

I'm marinating my #mushrooms with #chives from my garden and a #bayleaf from my baby bay tree that died this summer from the drought. I'm using the good olive oil and some white balsamic pear vinegar that I got as a gift. 12 Oct 2022 #imadethis #igrewthis #gyo #eatwhatyougrow #yay #experiment

@BakedKezzy I might put some in my eggs tomorrow morning, but I love marinated mushrooms so I might just eat them straight out of the jar. If I can muster some self-discipline I might try to scrounge up some bread and cheese and wine. Sounds like dinner, right @charlotte ?😂😂🤣🤣

I can't believe this glorious cluster that just popped up out of the ground all by itself. 😍🍄Now I get why these are sometimes called #godzilla mushrooms 12 Oct 2022 #winecap #gardengiant #mushrooms #fungi #gyo-mushrooms #yay #igrewthis

I'm a mushroom mama! After about a year (of waiting, giving up, and forgetting I even inoculated this #raisedbed) some #winecap #mushrooms have emerged in the cool fall weather! 🍄🍃🍁🍂🍷 27 Sep 2022 #gardengiant #fungus #fungusamongus

Only managed two barrows-full of #woodchips before I got tired. This will have to do. #ifitwantstoliveitllfight (I'll add another two loads after the rain.) 21 Nov 2021 #winecap #mushroombed #gyo #gyo-mushrooms #ediblelandscaping #raisedbed

It was only about an hour of work to prep these two beds once I'd amassed all the supplies.

This is the waterlogged #raisedbed in the back yard by the canal. I planted fuki in it last fall and it did pretty well. I'd already spread a layer of dried weed grass over this bed this past summer, and a nice layer of leaves had also fallen, so I skipped the cardboard and went straight for the #straw and #woodchips 21 Nov 2021 #winecap #mushroombed #gyo #gyo-mushrooms #hopeitworks

Third layer of the #winecap #mushroombed is #woodchips -- I dumped three wheelbarrow loads around the baby #pawpaw trees. The bed is about 4 feet in diameter and the wood chips are about 3-4 inches deep. 21 Nov 2021

These wood chips I got from #chipdrop are SO PERFECT for growing mushrooms because they are rough cut and lots of different sizes. From sawdust to large chunks. This means the mycelium won't exhaust the chips all at once, and the mushroom bed will probably keep producing for 2-3 years before I have to add another layer of straw and chips.

It's not 💩 -- this is #sawdust #mushroomspawn. The white flecks are the #mycelium that will become #winecap #mushrooms next fall or maybe even spring, if I did this right. 21 Nov 2021 #gyo #gyo-mushrooms

I am starting to wonder how you are going to use up all these mushrooms LOL

@emch me too!! I'll probably just give them to the neighbors.

Also, none of them are protected from deer, so the deer will probably get a bunch.

I laid #cardboard down around my #pawpaw tree months ago. I'd weighted it down with rocks and logs. Today I moved the rocks but left the logs. Also stabbed some drainage holes in the cardboard with my pitchfork. 21 Nov 2021 #winecap #mushroombed

Straw and the bag of #winecap #mushroomspawn from www.fieldforest.net -- decided it was time to do my mushroom beds this afternoon because it's going to rain tonight. The rain will soak the straw and chips for me. 😁🌬☔⚡💧🌫🌧🌱🍄 21 Nov 2021

I was following the guidelines from this #video, but I didn't have a way to pre-soak the cardboard and #straw. I think tonight's rain storm will do the job though. #procrastination #lazygardener https://youtu.be/N3DZV22HVeA

What looks like a loaf of bread is actually sawdust spawn for #winecap #mushrooms -- my yard has an overabundance of shade and water, so might as well grow mushrooms! 🍄 #fungusamongus #fungusfriday #fungus 23 Sep 2021 #experiment #edible #ediblelandscaping #permaculture #fieldandforestproducts www.fieldforest.net
