    My close friend is a mushroom farmer and has spent thousands for his set up. This cost me about $45. It has more than paid for itself already.

    I'm just waiting for the wild mushrooms to start popping up. Morels should be out any day now... :)

    I have grown some from kits, and read Mycellium Running (Paul Stamets)- you can order all sorts of spores and equipment online now

    Nice setup - might try indoors. My outdoor bella bed seems to be taken over by shaggy manes. Have oyster and shitake logs and stumps going, though.
    Skunked on morels this morning.:(

    Shaggy Manes are good, need to pick and use them quickly. They come up every fall in an old driveway areas.

    Found a ton of a reputedly easy to grow species called "Garden giant" or "Winecap". Color of cap and gills, and unique toothed ring are good indicators.
    Planted the stumps, mycelia and some mulch from the find in a new mulch bed. 80d0770b-3930-415e-b4db-6f94226138fa_zps569fe346.JPG

    Hi, If a follow up on the first post could be posted showing the actual production of mushrooms that would be great.
