I used a lot of spent mushroom compost this year under my raspberrys and because it is lovely and cool under them , we are picking mushrooms for our supper like this every 2 or third night after a lovely fall of rain this week.. I have to say they were more flavoursome than those grown in bags at the mushroom farm and sold to the supermarkets.. plus they were triple and quadruple the size..


mushrooms, garden produce, fungi free food

Adore nature in all its myriad forms, a testament to the designer.. I never cease to be amazed at the wonder that surrounds us and am continually in awe as I see the photos that are display on this site of each persons views of this grand world we inhabit… I am a retired nurse and enjoying just being able to take time to smell the flowers so to speak..

    ohh a glorious collection of Agaricus…are these the ‘button mushrooms’ we get in the stores? These look FABULOUS…so heavy bodied and lush

  • Yep, they are the “button mushooms”but some of the buttons are as big as saucers, I did use a lot of blood and bone this year to break down the mushroom compost, sees they love it as much as the vegies.. and they were I might add , delicious

    Wow! Those are some huge mushrooms! Lucky you! Maybe I should see if there’s a mushroom farm near me where I can get some compost for my garden! (I love mushrooms!) : D

  • You won’t be sorry, these believe it or not are the button mushrooms one buys in the supermarket.. but much better growing natural in nature …
