Was headed out camping and walked by my coffee grounds bucket, and was shocked by what I saw!
This what the project looked like in April.
I had been around this area earlier in the week and didn’t notice anything!
Beautiful luxurious Oyster Mushrooms! They are growing quite well, and I can’t wait to eat them. This marks a growing success for me, because this was the Oyster growing project I was most interested in.
Tons and tons of coffee grounds are wasted in our landfills each year. This proves that food can be produced using this waste product. Not only does it keep this valuable resource out of our landfills, but the mushrooms also neutralize the caffeine in the grounds.
Once again the process was low cost and not labor intensive. The spawn was just simply mixed into the coffee grounds and left to grow on it’s own. I can see a real use for these mushrooms in poor countries with shortages of food, and plenty of waste.
Thanks again to Wild Joe’s for the organic coffee grounds, and Garden City Fungi for the spawn.
