Only repeating what I saw and was told. A coworker was growing many kinds of mushrooms in his basement. It was impressive. He would take the mushrooms he wanted put them in the blended with water until the texter of a milkshake. Pour mixture in foam cups and place in a cool dark place until it mixture became solid, it would take a couple of weeks. Then he would have a clean 5 gallon pail filled with vermiculite, bury the solid mass of mushroom milkshake after removing the foam cup in the pail a 1/3 of the way down and within weeks he had more mushrooms then he could process.

Growing mushrooms.

One of the many things that I have spend many hours researching, but never quite got around to doing. As I spend my time downsizing, and getting ready to move, i still plan on raising a few in my next life (property).

This is a great thread- I noticed that on the fieldforest website that they offered a workshop last year- I wouldn't mind attending this year if it's offered.

That is how my wife and I got our start in the mid 1990's. Learned a lot at the one day seminar. Was well worth the price.

Any issues with deer browse, bears or other pests- Picnic Bettles, worms, etc?

On occasion a slug may climb the log and gnaw on a mushroom. There may be an occasional small beetle but if you monitor the mushroom growth and pick before they are past prime the issue is usually minor. No damage by birds or deer, though.

I googled mushroom spawn and the first thing that popped up was not what I was expecting! I have always wanted to get some mushroom. Logs going around the house, my wife loves to cook with them maybe this is some we can get going and enjoy together.

Does anybody sell mushrooms to farmers' market or restaurants or online, etc.? If so, do you sell fresh or dehydrated? Price?

There is an auction barn close to me that the Amish run. When the mushroom season is on I have sold many there. Usually, they bring $50.00 to $75.00 a pound. These are wild morels auctioned off to the highest bidder.
