    #1234185 - 01/20/03 02:09 PM (14 years, 10 months ago)

I went to a big supermarket chain where i live and couldnt help but to see some porties. DaaaMM they r expensive
and in so bad condition. They went for 11$ per kilo.  yikkKKes! :confused:  :mad: :confused:

Another funny thing is on one of those huge pieces i saw a lil abort  at the bottom LOL :grin: :grin:

Don't you live somewhere near me? :wink:

Yes, they are quite expensive....although I generally think they're better value than buttons.

I'm always astounded by the quality of the 'shrooms I find at both the grocery store and the farmers market. Growers like Moneys really do seem to throw just about anything that vaguely resembles a mushroom into those little punnets.

It may look like a button mushroom right now, but wait until you see how it grows!

uhhhh, yea somewhere  near u lol :smirk: :smile: :smile: :smirk:

buttons r ridiculously priced and i dont find them as tasty as porties...but thats my opinion :grin:

for ppl who live in the city, going to a farmers market is not as  easy as  going to ur large  supermarket chain...
like safeway, loblaws, etc....

i know ya dont buy them at the market psychonaut,  since  u prolly grow them....but  next time u go to
a market, take a look and tell me what they go for?  :cool:

The quality of  mushrooms at local grocery stores are bad.....what are the proper storage conditions for gourmet
shrooms.I mean the temp they should be kept at, how to properly store and dis[play them,  how
long can they be kept in those conditions  b4 they deteriate.  And signs to look for when buying good quality
gourmet shrooms?

Yesterday I went to my favorite barn for some compost and found a wild opened and a button porto fruiting in aged manure under a rain roof.I had my daughter carry home the button and I just took clone tissue for liquid culture and since I had a couple extra BRF jars I put a couple slices into them also.I will post some pics tomorrow.Talk about timing I was just about to buy a "kit" for tissue culture and spawn and I had an already aclimatized strain dumped in my lap.If I can induce fruiting I will give out prints.A nice cold fruiting Porto for PNW outdoor culture :wink:WR

yea, great timing indeed!  :wink:

May i ask u how  does one clone a tissue for liquid culture and putting a couple slices into a BRF jar???...pls
elaborate on that?

speaking of compost.....can i use blood meal, or bone meal in anyway as compost for grwin portabello's?
can it be used in spawning or in the casing??

looking 4ward to seeing those pics  WR

I would not think so. Blood meal is way to hot, too much nitrogen, and the contams would run rampant. The whole composting thing accomplishes two things. First it lowers the C:N ratio of the substrate and second it establishes a microbial community that is inhibitory to contams but not to the edibles. Bone meal has less nitrogen, lots of phosphourous and almost no carbon to speak of. You may be able to use blood meal instead of manure to jump start the composting process, but manure is way cheaper.

first is a terrible shot of one liquid culture.hopefuly you can see the tissue has diffused prior to producing mycelial threads.I will try to get a better shot out of my crappy cam :smirk:Oh well just looked at the post forget the first pic
[pic deleted by WR]

this is a shot that is much clearer of the BRF jars and the tissue pieces inside.The one on the left is getting rough and preparing to send out mycelia also.This is day two post tissue cloning(taking tissue from inside the mushroom for culture).I will try to update as things develop. PS the blurry piece of white goo in the first shot was a piece about the size of the larger one in the jars It has expanded to 3-4 times it's original size. WR

sBUD: they even sell stuff like lobsters at my local farmers market (and I live downtown in Canada's largest city). :wink:

I'll do some price checking next time I go as they vary seasonally.

well i have both composted cow manure AND bone meal and was just wondering how i could use these two for grwin  portabello's?
I may go the the local garden centre and picking up a kit just to dip my feet into them...
but i still have lotsa reading to do in p.stamets book LOL.

p.naut>>>>yep seen live lobsters, also live salmon and other weird sea creatures LOL
but i alwayz get curious and tend to look at the supermarket edibles, their prices especially!
I think winter season is when they r highest, no matter where u are! 
Is it possible that during the grwing process of gourmets that u could  grow a contaminated portabello' shroom
without seeing it and then eating it??  If that happens and u cook it in whatever way (sautee,  broil,
braise, etc...) will that cooking process  kill the contam?
Or would that be impossible to happen...

sBUD :tongue:
