    Growing Mushrooms and Fungi

    Reply to Worowa's post.
    I've been advised by our newspaper printers that soy based inks are not used in South Africa.
    All use oil based inks - not good news.
    What about using cardboard? or the 20 year old thatch grass that I have plenty of?

            Re: growing mushrooms

            Hi,

            This series of posts have really inspired me. I have written to Forest Fungi to see if I can get some Portabella spawn as I have some horse manure compost cooking right now.

            Does any one else have another source for this variety of spawn.

            Thanks

              I have the catalogue from this company in my bathroom
              http://www.fungi.com/index.html
              It has been there for a year.
              I read it every time I have a bath. :duckie:
              It is very crinkly now.
              This catalogue makes me more anti-yank than the Bush Administration and banging up Ozzies without trial for four years, ever could.
              You lucky baskets can get all this stuff legally by mail.
              I mean there must be a Human Rights; torture, or some issue here?
              Ozzies would be shipped to the Christmas Island Detention Centre if they tried to order!

              :hippy2:
              I went on a bush ramble at Mt Elliot?( a very small reserve on the Central Coast NSW) with the NSW Fungi Club. At first you wander though the bush thinking "there is bugger all here. . . grumble. ." pretty soon people start finding stuff and your eyes start to SEE They zero in on all sorts of amazing stuff. It is everywhere you look, and i mean everywhere, -- these are only the fruiting bodies there must be 10, 100 1,000 times more underground. :!: :?: :!: :oops:
              One or two, the Prof. who was with us could not identify, others he/she? had to take back to the lab to identify properly. Like a lot of flora and soil fauna in Oz we have no idea how much is still out there waiting to be found.
              A fascinating study, but for my next life I'm afraid. :grommit:

              BTW
              • Mushrooms sprout after lightening. (Some think this is an OWT , i don't)[/*:m:s7szow92]
              • Mushrooms grown in commercial tunnels quadruple+ their vitamin D levels when given a burst of an hours sunlight.[/*:m:s7szow92]
              • Apart from sunlight mushrooms are our main source of Vitamin D[/*:m:s7szow92]
              • Most (90%?)people over 60 in Australia are vitamin D deficient[/*:m:s7szow92]
              • Both the above are odd considering the amount of sun in Oz and that Vitamin D is more like a hormone than a vitamin so what is the mushroom doing with it?![/*:m:s7szow92]

                I researched this and Thought 'takes too long'
                What does a 40 year old Oak look like?

                Their are Australian native truffles being grown too

                I guess the same restaurant sent me off in another area to find French Tarragon.
                The chef made stunning Bernaise sauce.
                Every nursery sold Russian tarragon.
                Fed up one day i took a plant back to a specialist herb nursery to complain.
                I said, "You MUST know this isn't French Tarragon". (Now I'm not sure they did).
                I got dismissed sumararilly with a backward flip of the wrist "People want French Targon: I give them 'french tarragon'!
                Incensed, :evil: I started to study herbs so seriously that it took over my life.
                initially, he only way I could make my precious Bernaise sauce was with French imports.
                I wonder if that addiction has antyhing to do with my current cholesterol count of 9 (Don't panic Yanks-you have a different scale)
                How things have changed (for the better food wise)

                  This guy may have some exotics for sale.
                  I saw him on Landline some time ago.
                  A great pity the vision is not available on-line (when I am PM I will. . .)
