Mushrooms have to be one of the biggest overlooked finds for the backyard vegetable garden. That’s a shame because they are so easy to cultivate and extremely productive considering the minimal effort required to start them growing.
You’ll find a number of articles right here at Veggie Gardening Tips related to growing both gourmet and medicinal edible mushrooms, and today I wanted to add a little video content to show just how easy it is to start your own crop of Shiitakes, Maitakes, Oysters, Lion’s Mane, Reishi, Chicken of the Woods, and other interesting and delicious mushroom species.
Grow Your Own Edible Mushrooms Indoors or Out
There are many different techniques used to cultivate mushrooms commercially, but for the home gardener the best options are the convenient kits used to grow them indoors or hardwood log inoculation for cultivating mushrooms outdoors.
The great thing about using hardwood logs is that once they are inoculated and begin fruiting they will continue to produce pound after pound of gourmet mushrooms for years to come at no additional expense or labor requirement.
