Progress Started: is to gain the experience for current healthier living; a cheaper and organic way to obtain more expensive shrooms, and make it more interesting for my kids so they will maybe eat them.
Progress Report: 2-15-14...I bought a shitake mushroom kit last week. Today, I followed the instructions to begin. In 10 days, I check my box for progress.
New Goal: I am going to get mushroom spores and raise my own crop in the basement.
New Goal: To be updated.
New Goal: This is a goal we have considered a few times, and have decided to start at the bottom. Instead of simply picking a few here and there for ourselves or our dinner, we will be purchasing some spores for use this coming season.
New Goal: Learn techniques and the process of growing edible mushrooms for consumption. Familiarize myself with nutritional and medicinal uses. Initiate growing/cultivating and replanting from spores from self-grown crop.
Goal Completed: Create a source of food and deliciousness in the shady areas of my homestead.
Progress Report: I feel that this skill can be checked off. I innoculated oak limbs with Shitake. I will probably try some Mytake this year. It takes as much as two years for the bloom to occur. Also harvested some wild mushrooms and cooked them up. Delicious. I can check this one off.
New Goal: reishi, turkey tail and shitaki logs
New Goal: Grow mushrooms in the basement this winter.
