What's Growing This Season?

With the warmer weather upon us we’ve started stocking the greenhouse with a few of our springtime favourites. Vibrant flushes of pink and yellow oyster mushrooms are setting the tone for a long, warm summer ahead. 

The delicate yellow oyster mushroom with its sweet & nutty profile is ideal for cultivating as the spring weather begins to warm up. The striking and equally flavoursome pink oyster mushroom will carry us through producing flushes over the hottest summer months here in South East Queensland.

The jumbo summer white oyster will be taking pride of place in our greenhouse producing consistently generous flushes of meaty, white oyster mushrooms suitable for a wide range of dishes.

We’re also taking advantage of the last of the cool weather and some of the more insulated spaces in our home to fruit some of the last cool-loving king oyster mushrooms for the season.

Cooking With Mushrooms

Grain Spawn Starter

Grain spawn is a little known secret weapon of the world of mushroom cultivation. It’s made from sterilised grains that have been inoculated with a live mycelium culture.

Grain spawn contains a lot of energy for the mycelium to consume. It’s a bit like rocket fuel for mushrooms. Once it’s added to your substrate it takes off like wild fire. 

Mother Nature works her magic using spores but in a controlled environment you need to tip the scales in your favour by using clean high-quality grain spawn so you are doing your best to ensure success.
