The Full Story

Growing Mushrooms Outdoor

If you have a garden and would like to introduce edible mushrooms to your vegetables, they will help your veggies grow better and stronger by regenerating the soil, providing you with better quality food. You can also grow mushrooms on logs, this method requires more patience but you can have supplies of mushrooms for years.

In all methods of growing mushrooms, there is win-win scenario, you have own grown edible mushrooms, if you are growing veggies, you have better quality vegatables plus the soil around your house will improve at the same time taking a part in climate change.



With a little outdoor space, you can create mushroom beds where you can grow only mushrooms or if you grow vegetables in your garden, you can grow mushrooms in between your veggies, saving space and improving quality of your vegetables and the soil at the same time.

This is the cheapest and most sustsainable way of growing mushrooms using all the organic matter from your garden, straw, wood chips and cardboard.
