Margaret, the tablecloth is absolutely fabulous!!

Promise -- what kind of crazy Santa would bring a kid a karaoke machine (did he run out of drum sets or something?) Blinking

Greene -- now THAT is what I call a great present!! Big Yellow Grin

The festivities are over here -- had a great time visiting with family that we hadn't seen for a while, and later my stepdaughter and her 2 girls came over for a while, and now... ahhhhh peace and quiet. DH has already been put on notice that I am "off" tomorrow... we're having a family dinner here on New Year's Day so I'll be doing some cleaning and stuff this week, but tomorrow -- there is nothing that I really need to do. Hurray!

It was Rick Corey who first told me about the tiny spoons.
My daughter found them at a local kitchen store; used a plastic pet food container as a 'box' to disguise the gift.
My poor dog Jack thought the gift was for him.

Hope everyone had a Merry Christmas. I sit here thinking of spring and what all I can do outside. It's nice enough today to be outside but I'm a bit congested so I will just work inside and dream about spring.

I didn't realize cress was used as an herb -- I've always thought of it as just a spicy little thing to add to sandwiches and salads. (I'd be happy get some... hint, hint Hilarious! )

Thanks for understanding...

From the research I just finished, it looks like mushroom spores remain viable for years. So, just in case mushroom spores show up in anyone's feeding trough....

I recommend adding about 30 ml water, and leave the label in the bag, and shake it, and let it sit overnight before dumping the solution/paper out onto whatever substrate you are inoculating. The spores are not sterile, so I recommend using them only for outdoor grows. Planting at the beginning of rainy weather is highly recommended.

To give the mushrooms an extra boost of nutrients and antibiotics: 1 ml of molasses and 1 ml of 3% hydrogen peroxide may be added to the water before adding to the spores.

Thanks for the information Joseph. I just copied and pasted the above post and put it on my database in the notes and journal section. Good info and that way it won't get lost for future use.

Joseph - Much thanks for all the wisdom you are imparting. Before you started talking about mushrooms, I assumed they were one of those impossible things that I would never be able to grow. Now, every time you share more info I get even more stoked about trying them. Suddenly the impossible is sounding awfully easy. Thumbs up

Folks... If you don't want to be hunting back through the threads for growing info on anything anybody has discussed or other info. , just go to your database, click edit and the very bottom entry is for whatever notes or such you want to keep. You can put plants, recipes or anything else of interest you want there and it will be easy for you to find when you want it.
