Very Nice Vapor, this mornings harvest.


Learn something new everyday, very cool... Do they taste similar to any other mushrooms? How do you grow them?


As far as taste they're a fairly mild tasting mushroom, not musky like some with a texture much like crab meat. Preparation can alter the texture, Panco crumbs for a crunchy bite, Tempera.....

They're grown on/in hardwood sawdust blocks, inoculated hardwood logs... like Maple, Birch, Oak but can be tricked with honey being such a complex sugar to grow even on straw but the process can be intensive.

I've gone with grain spawn in the pasted but the easiest way is to just buy an inoculated growers block.

Lions mane are one of the easier mushrooms to grow and are considered a choice edible mushroom.


Edit:
This mornings harvest was rather small for Lions mane. I had to evacuate excessive moisture from the growers block or there could have been mold eventually so the extra holes in the plastic bag make more fruiting points and pull nutrients from others causing smaller fruiting bodies.

The answer to 1984 is 1973 ยง Panasonic or Samsung - that is the question: Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer.

My farmer has a great sense of humor and speaks his mind... One of the hardest working farmers I know...

I think they're worth it.
Edit: Not the prettiest but breaded fish salad and pan fried Lions Mane.

Our garden about drowned at the start and now has burned up. This year sucked. We managed to get enough cucumbers to pickle a few jars. The tomatoes and squash all got too much water and started rotting on the vines. The only things going right now are okra and my ghost peppers.

I added chickens to the farm this year after not having any for the past decade. Remembering why I stopped now. Got a cow ready for the butcher. I just need to clean out the freezer or go get another one.
My opinions are my own. If you disagree with them please take a big healthy crap in your hands and give yourself a round of applause.

Just don't order any seeds from China for your gardens or jewellery! ๐Ÿ˜


Funny article in todays DailyMailUK

Packets of seeds from China mislabeled as jewelry are mailed to Americans in six different states



People in at least six US states have received unsolicited seed packages labeled as jewelry from China, prompting agriculture officials to warn that the seeds could be environmentally harmful.

A number of confused residents in Washington, Virginia, Utah, Kansas, Arizona and Louisiana were sent small seed packages in the mail, with labels suggesting they were sent from China.

In some of the instances, the packages had Chinese writing printed on the labels and are misbranded as various pieces of jewelry.

Washington officials added that this act is known as agricultural smuggling and people should notify the U.S. Department of Agriculture for further instructions.

Maybe you could plant them and once they're grown, you could climb up them and kill a giant and steal all his gold ??
Insert smart and witty comment here.....

Good thing those weren't solicited parcels as the one in the picture needed over 5 months to reach the US border.
Shipped on February 8th, arrived in the US on July 14th.
