city slicker looking for mini bales on the internet
    #1404660 - 03/24/03 02:03 AM (13 years, 8 months ago)

I live in a major metropolis and can't get hay locally nor do I have a car. In the fall, I have found mini bales at street sales and pumpkin patches. I am looking for a more reliable (year round) source on the internet. Any ideas? I have checked craft sites and searched to no avail.

On the link above they sell "Hay bales" Please be aware of what you're buying.

There is a difference between HAY and STRAW. For growing mushrooms, you want straw, not hay. Be careful.

Someone on here said once, although it's sold as a 'hay' bale, it's actually straw.
So I was going on that.

If you want I can go accross the street and bye you some and I can send it to ya. All I wll charge you is for the straw and shipping and handling. You wont have to pay me anything. Just pm me and we can discuss. I have afeed store across the street and the post office 3 doors down so its no big deal to me.

I am of the impression that hay is green and straw is yellow.

I have tried timothy hay marketed as rabbit food and had mixed results. I got 3 of these mini bales in the fall and after a miss had two great results.

Now that the search feature is back, I looked up where I saw that info... here it is, from mycofile.

sorry dude, but this ain't advanced. On top of that, answers are easy to find. You shouldn't post like this.

But anyway. You don't want hay, it's very shitty, search if you want to know why specifically.

Straw is what you want. Nearly any kind of straw will work, but 99% of us (and them too I suppose) use wheat straw. You get straw from nurseries, home improvement stores, farmers, landscape companies, some pet stores, and most overlooked, craft stores or even walmarts craft section. Craft straw is sometimes called hay on the packaging, but it is definitely straw. mini bales 12"X12"X6" cost anywhere from fifty cents to five dollars and can yield nearly a dry pound if you got mad luck or mad skills. If you like to get ripped off or are lazy, I believe mushroommagic sells preshredded straw from outrageous amounts of money. They also have other shitty business practices for which they should not be supported.

Oven bags suck, the plastic is thinner and the seams aren't sealed. Order autoclave bags from a vendor.

Use the faq, use the search, post in appropriate forums.
