Mushroom farm secrets

 mushroom farm

Anna's mushroom post this morning sent me on a research trail that led all the way to a Fungus farm in Singapore. These nice pictures illustrate how one can make their own man made logs out of a simple plastic bag. I imagine the bag is filled with some sort of saw dust.

We've been thinking of trying something like this in the refrigerator root cellar to see if we can achieve mushroom production on a year round basis.

6 Ways Mushrooms Can Save the World
Hi, Anna! I hope you and Mark had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Have you seen the TEDtalk by Paul Stamets on "6 Ways Mushrooms Can Save the World?" It's really interesting! Here's the link: http://blog.ted.com/2008/05/paul_stamets.php. Stamets also wrote a book entitled, "Mycelium Running: How Mushrooms Can Help Save the World," which can be found used on Amazon, although I haven't read it, myself, yet. Enjoy the talk!

I did read the book --- it's what got me started and is probably the number one book I've read this year. I highly recommend it! I'll definitely have to go check out the TED lecture! Thanks for the link.
