Does anyone know how to grow mushrooms? There must be an easy system. I've heard about growing mushrooms in a cardboard box. Or buying a log that already has spores on it.

Thanks Lynn,

We are trying to get a Manorca rooster through Trade me. Manorca don't really crow, they just kind of "Hurrumph"! just thought II'd try the locals for eggs seeing wev'e got a nest sitter now.

As for pet factor. Its a difficult one especially when some of those cute little balls of fluff are very likely to be boys! As Bill Mollison said in my permaculture course. If youv'e got both genders pets very quickly become pests.

We are not vegetarian so we try and breed for the table. I have the same take as Hugh from "River Cottage". I would rather know that the animal has had a good quality of life and do the business myself than buy from the supermarket.

For me there is also an element of keeping skills alive in a community as well. My wifes grandfather tells stories of how nearly everyone in his street "bred for the table" when he was a boy. I'm sure that is a rarity on most streets these days.

Apolgies to the vegetarians out there.

cheers
Richard

Passion fruit sounds fantastic, but I might leave that to you Lynn.
Hi all, I am the other household with 16 of the 35 chickens.
We just got ours last week as 18 week old pullets and they are now laying about 12 eggs a day.On top of that they are weeding, debugging and fertilising experts.

Hi I would be interested in trading vegies for eggs. I am also looking at getting a couple of hens. At the moment I have really only got tomatoes and passionfruit to trade as I planted an early garden but I may have other things. I'm in Astley Ave.
