Nice one - I've always wanted to do this so let us know how you go!
Yeah Dave I cant be bothered with a kits, not very good value for money. Just buying the innoculated grain to mix through some substrate myself. I am looking at 4-5kg per week, a couple of kilos for us and a couple of kilos to sell to mates to help pay for them.
Last time I looked mushroom kits were in short supply and limited range. But here in Brissie there has been a break through:Little Acre.
Their story is really inspiring.
It is also a segment on Landline: HERE.
These days plenty of places sell innoculated grain spawn so I will just cold water lime pastuerise some substrate and mix to grow in buckets. The lab might be further down the track if I want to clone mushies and make my own innoculated grain. Mainly going to try oysters, pink in the summer and yellow in winter.
Just had a quick look at this book, too deep for me. You need a lab to grow some of them. Knowing which ones are edible is a science in itself, It is amazing though, these growths are the ultimate, when it comes to recycling, they are the best.
There is a similar book on auction site, expensive but there are not many good detailed books on this subject for sale secondhand. Well done.
We had a load of tea tree mulch delivered last year and the weird fungi that grew in the mulch were incredible and strangely beautiful, similar to top centre on front page of that book.
It will be interesting to see what you can grow and how!!.
