Our soil (and I use that word lightly) is also crap mostly rocks actually. I use sheep manure from under the shearing shed as it is really available from the farmer down the road. One for his youngsters get it out and sells it for $2 a large bag. I don’t know of any mushroom farms around here but I will try and hunt one down just to try it. Maybe I should grow my own mushrooms, now that is a thought. Has any one tried growing theirs?
Bonus Judi B, compost and free mushrooms. I have never used mushroom compost myself as I thought it had the wrong PH for most plants not sure where that idea came from. What do you use it on and is it good for veggies?
I might try some orange and tangerines in pots and see what happens. The oranges I can from here but will have to buy the others. I don’t know if they would work maybe organic would be better what do you think?
