The Joy of Oyster Mushrooms, at Home!

by Chris R.
(Pomona Valley, CA USA)

I purchased some Oyster mushroom spawn from a reputable source, during Spring 2010. By Fall, and now into a rainy December in Southern California, I am harvesting great quality, right here at home. I'm using Cottonwood logs, raised on saw horses to keep the bugs/slugs off of them. These retail for anywhere from $6 to $8 per pound!

Amy, I am in MA and I am growing oyster mushrooms indoor now (and im in the hills so have snow here now). Admittedly, I am using one of the kits you can get at Whole Foods, but it works!

Congratulations, Chris! Once again proving that growing your own mushrooms can be economical as well as satisfying and fun. I'm imagining your tales of cultivation success while I sit here in NH watching the snow fall......

Thanks for sharing!
