Think Spring

We have to think spring really hard this year, since Mother Nature is trying to hide it from us. It snowed a large part of the day yesterday! Fortunately the ground has now thawed enough that most of the snow melted immediately. 

We have started to get very busy with spring work despite the weather. If you follow us on Facebook or Twitter you already know that I am going to give mushroom growing a try. Mushrooms are very different from anything else we have ever grown, but we are jumping in with fingers crossed. I built a crazy looking mushroom grow chamber.

I am starting out with oyster mushrooms which need darkness to get started, hence the body bag. I used duct tape and black garden plastic, not very high tech but it will hopefully work! I will share more details once it gets going.

The green house is working out great! We have trays of seeds starting to sprout already!

Plants sprouting is the best part of spring! Although the poem Lucy brought home from school the other day is also pretty great. :)
