Mushrooms

I love looking at, cooking and eating mushrooms. Always have. One year, a long time ago when I lived in humid Queensland, I purchased a box of ungerminated button mushrooms, stored them under the house and waited and watched. Before long the crop began, and they multiplied daily at a rate that led to a great deal of waste. These were days before I thought of drying or preserving the mushrooms by other means. 

Fast forward and now in Tasmania, I ordered a box ready to grow Oyster mushrooms. They delivered grandly.

Seeing these photos inspires me to buy another block of inseminated mushroom spores. The mushroom seller at the Bathurst Street Farm Gate Market on Sunday mornings, sells such blocks and it may be time for me to relieve her of one block!
