Growing Gourmet and Medicinal Mushrooms
Winter is the perfect time to begin mushroom growing when everything else is quiet. This book, Growing Gourmet and Medicinal Mushrooms, by Paul Stamets, gives detailed instructions on how to grow mushrooms for home use and for small commercial enterprises. It covers 31 mushroom species with information on gardening, soil mediums, the life cycle of mushrooms, a brief history of mycology, and a section in the middle with color photographs.
This would be a great addition to the library of any small farm or homestead and could help launch a new product to sell with all those tomatoes. Can you imagine someone at a farmer's market with tomatoes, onions, mushrooms and basil to sell setting up a little propane burner and sauteing everything together for customers to try? They would sell out!
Growing Gourmet and Medicinal Mushrooms is available from Amazon for $29.70.
