    This was postponed, I believe? Is now to be a kefir theme?

    Just wanting to check in briefly. From what I can tell, you can either do plugs in logs (less expensive but takes several months for first flush), or kits (more expensive, but quicker). And then there is spawn for growing mushrooms in your garden, so that would be on straw mulch. I will post again soon with more details, meantime, any votes on which types of mushrooms/style of growing folks are interested in? I haven't seen mention of the rice in plastic bag idea...and am not particularly interested in the idea of the plastic bags myself.

      I just tried to grow mushrooms from one of these Back to the Roots kits in January and it was a failure. I don't know where I went wrong, but even after asking the kit company for help, nothing sprouted in a month. http://store.backtoth...­

    I think this sounds interesting, how much are plugs? Anyone know if it is feasible to grow mushrooms in an apartment...maybe in a kitchen cupboard or a shelf somewhere?

    Hi Jane, I plan to attend and I vote for shitake. Here's a comprehensive article on the subject. Should I mail a check? I like plugs in logs for several harvests?

    Great to meet you, thanks so much for coming last week. I forgot all about the turmeric...

      Probably growing in plastic bag of cooked rice. Very common in Asia in the market. You can grow two or maybe 3 crops and then it dies off. You can buy kits to do this. Should be interesting.
