Maybe we should all start a mushroom garden. just for the added diversity.

this video was really worth the time to watch! 

maybe i will start some mushrooms, but i will definitely move my brush pile away from the burn pit and into a low wet spot in the pasture.  it should decompose nicely there.

still eager for spring and my first bees!

Has anyone tried mixing honey with the medicinal mushrooms Paul suggests and offer it to their bees?

Oddly I have been thinking of growing mushrooms for awhile now. Guess I need to get off my butt and do it. :smile:
