If someone had told me 5 years ago that I would be living on a farm building mushroom wood chips beds (with mushroom spawn I made myself), I would not have believed them.
This weekend we were in the most pleasant situation to have on hand all the materials required! I could hardly contain my excitement.
- fresh wood chips (aspen, just chipped from healthy trees) (there are about 4 garbage cans full of wood chips in this bed…)
- clean straw
- sawdust spawn (in this case, pearl oyster)
And voila! One new wood chip bed. We’ll see how long it takes to fruit!
