Mushroom Harversting Guide
    #1623895 - 06/10/03 04:31 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)

Just uploaded something I've that I've been to complete for some time now  :laugh:
I'd very much appreciate any feedback.

Sustainable Mushroom Harvesting Guide

If someone been raping your patch then this is something you should read and distribute.

Thanks,
Adrian

What do you think?
Not a bad first effort (i.e. good)
Okay, but needs a little work (i.e fair)
Give up while your ahead buddy! (i.e. poor)
Ha! My dog's farts are more informative (i.e. crap)

any species that I collect (identifiable or not) gets it's cap broken into wedges and distributed in my yard. I have a rather large number of species thriving in my yard as a result.

I've established morels in an orchard in the PNW using water used to wash my finds with bits and pieces of morel in it... :smile:

I don't see why it wouldn't work for other species.  It's bound to have a low success rate, so one attempt (or one person's attempts) failing doesn't really discredit the theory...

I thought there was some good advice in there Adrian.  Another thing one can do to spread the spores is dry the mushies gills down on paper so prints are collected, then scrape all the spores off at the end of the season and distribute them in favorable habitats via air or water.  I had a large pile of spores from my finds over the fall :blush: .  There's always stamets' idea of sporeprints on a hat too.  It's always good to help the shrooms by spreading their spores around in return for picking them I think, a symbiosis if you will :grin: .

These are some comments about the layout of the guide, not the actual content. First, I'd change the font color to something dark, or even black. White font is hard to read. Make the background picture a bit lighter. Then, left justify the text. It sucks to have to jump to a gazillion areas on the screen to read the next lines. You can still have the left-justified text in the center of the screen by setting up width parameters on a table or something similar.

i didnt even notice the centralized text and it wasnt hard to read for me, but you know....
