Joan and Daniel, all very interesting! I checked the website on urine for the garden. Good stuff.
And morel spores (spawn?) from Amazon? Keep us informed.

Thanks for including Shaggy Mane. It doesn't sound like a very appetizing one, nor worth a trip to collect them.

We get mushrooms sprouting here occasionally, but the only one I know of as edible, is what is called the shaggy mane. Its a very watery mushroom when cooked, & has little flavour.

Daniel, I LOVE your experiments. Please keep us informed on their dvelopment. 

We had a week of snow melt until even the piles of snow were gone. I woke up to a snifter of snow, barely settling on the needles and a few weeds poking through the ground snow. 

For newcomers to this site, I live on the top of a north slope of a huge sand bar left by the melting Ice Ave glaciers. The firs that grow here have moss on the north side and we have colder temperatures than weather bureau measurements for this area.

Daniel, your beautiful photos of mushrooms indicates to me that you have good growing conditions for them. Do you know if they are edible?

I know absolutely nuthing about mycelium except what I have read and your descriptions matches my reading. 

I Googled, "Where to buy edible mushroom spores?":

Google: "interactive map source to buy edible mushroom spores?" 

Sorry, could not find an interactive map!

I Googled: "How to make edible mushrooms grow in wood chips."


"...woodchips had been soaking (and therefore fermenting) in the barrel in this pic for a week prior to draining for use in this garden.

Soaking the woodchips in this was is a lo-fi way of semi sterilizing them: all the aerobic spores/bacteria die off during the soak, and the anaerobic spores/bacteria die off once the woodchips are drained. It’s not perfect, but it’s quick and it’s simple and it works."

"Stropharia rugosoannulata are known as King Stropharia, Wine cap mushrooms or Garden Giants. They are a tasty addition to any garden and grow up to 30cm across.

King Stropharia are native to the Northern Hemisphere but are a hardy fungi that will do well with the right growing conditions, which is mainly woodchips, with partial shade. A simple mushroom garden is a great way to grow them."

Thomas & Spud, I Googled "containered grown fruits (blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, etc.) grow more fruits than ground based fruits" and found nothing. What I did find was
