Shiitake Mushroom Garden

This is the newest addition to The Gardens at 1844 House.

I would like to extend a big thank you to Bob Wagner who generously spent his morning here on the bank of our new pond to give Barry and I a class on mushroom farming.  It was a lot of fun and surprisingly easy when you have your mise en place in order.  Unfortunately, it will be next summer before we get our first crop. Luckily we will be able to purchase fresh mushrooms from Bob’s garden to use this summer as they begin to bloom.

We will be posting Bob’s contact information on our web site so that you can contact him if you would like to start your own mushroom garden, buy some fresh mushrooms, or attend one of his Local Living Venture classes.

Bon Appetite!  Chef Brian
