With the price of mushrooms sky-rocketing lately I've been considering growing my own for a while.
At the July Garden Club meeting J from the garden shop said they were having a sale on the mushroom farms available in boxes so next morning off I went to buy one.
I wasn't sure about these kits because in the past I'd always had them fail (read I always managed to forget about them)
This time I was going to succeed!
mistake* I soon realised this was much too cold.
The instructions said "Room Temperature" which is fine if the room temperature is between 18-22C. During July in my laundry the temperature is lucky to go above 10C. So this meant moving the farm into the dining room.
A check with a thermometer revealed the temp was just right.
It's working! Ya!
I'll need to keep a close eye on it for the next few days to see how fast these little mushies grow...
