GROWING YOUR OWN MUSHROOMS IN YOUR GARDEN
Earlier, mushrooms in the country seemed exotic. But today in stores you can buy the mycelium of almost any mushroom, from aspen mushrooms and honey agarics, to oyster mushrooms and shiitake, and have them on your site. All you need to do is stick to simple rules.
EXPERIENCE MUSHROOMS ON BARS
I grow mushrooms on birch, aspen, alder bars.
At the end of summer, I soak the chocks in water for a day, fill the holes with a nail in wet wood (one at a distance of 3-4 cm from each other). I put pieces of mycelium in them, seal them with balls of wet moss. I put everything in large garbage bags, in each I make a dozen holes so that the wood "breathes", and I hang it in the closet. When mycelium threads 2-3 cm long appear on the bars, I dig shallow trenches in the garden, put the bars in them with holes upward, fill the space between them with wet sawdust. Sprinkle it on top with earth (4 cm), water it with water and cover it with straw mulch.
In the spring, I carefully remove the mulch and earthen shelter. I make sure that the mushroom bed does not dry out. And from the middle of summer I start picking my mushrooms.

LOOKED MUSHROOMS FROM HATS
Several aspens, birches and oak grow in the country. Last fall, I went with relatives to the grove to pick mushrooms. Under the same trees as in my area, there were many old, overripe, eaten by the larvae of mushrooms. I put their hats separately in a bucket. At home, she poured water with settled water, added half a glass of sugar. After half an hour, I kneaded the mushrooms with my hands, it turned out to be a thick mass, like sour cream. She let her stand for an hour. Sod was cut around birch, aspen and oak. I poured the mushroom mass onto this area, covered it with the sod removed earlier. In dry weather, once every 4-5 days, it was watered abundantly with settled water. And already at the end of July this year, she began to harvest boletus and boletus boletus right on her site.
PLANTED WHITE MUSHROOMS IN THE DACHA
She began growing forest mushrooms in her country house several years ago. In early autumn, I dug small pieces of boletus mushrooms in the forest, wrapped them in damp paper, and folded them into a plastic bag. I collected the overripe boletus separately. I put them completely in a bucket, poured them with rainwater, left them for a day, stirred them well, and strained them through a sieve. Before "planting" the ground was watered with this mushroom infusion with subtrees. I made small indentations, put the mycelium from the bag in them, and covered them with pieces of turf.
In dry weather, every day I sprayed it with water from a spray bottle (I did not water it so as not to compact the soil). She covered the future mushroom meadow with fallen leaves for the winter. Already the next year she harvested the first boletus crop.

LIKE SHIITAKE? GROW YOURSELF!
I first tried shiitake about five years ago. I liked the taste very much, since then I bought them in stores, and two years ago, I found mycelium on sale.
At the end of the summer, a relative brought a dozen logs of alder, oak, aspen, willow to my site. I cut them into chunks 1,5 m long and about 30 cm wide.
He peeled off the bark and laid it in the most shaded corner of the garden with a pyramid. I made cuts in the logs with a depth of 5-7 cm. I put mycelium in them, covered them with wet sawdust and wrapped them with tissue adhesive plaster. Opened the holes every 10-12 days. When I noticed that the mycelium had sprouted, I took off the plaster completely.
In dry weather, the ground around the logs was watered abundantly, and the logs themselves were sprayed with water from a spray bottle so that they did not dry out. In the middle of autumn, when the mycelium threads became clearly visible, she laid the logs in shallow trenches so that the earth reached half of the lying chocks. The rest of the place was filled with damp foliage starting to rot (layer thickness - 5-7 cm). She removed this mulch in the spring. The first mushrooms appeared that year only at the end of August. But now I harvest throughout the summer. I plan to lay a couple more of these tree myceliums. This time you don't even have to buy mycelium, I'll take it from my site!
