Rhett takes some time to answer some viewer mail. In addition, we’ve been tagged with the Thinking Blogger Award! So, in keeping with the award, here are our five favorite blogs and podcasts (they’re blogs, too!). If you write for any of these, consider yourself tagged! We give a blurb about each of the blogs in the video
- Green As A Thistle
- Visualize Whirled Peas
- America The Green Podcast
- Practical Green Living
For this week’s project, Rhett gives some pointers on how to get started growing oyster mushrooms on old coffee grinds. This sort of “direct to food” decomposition is a real godsend for those of us who don’t have back yards or large gardens for making and using compost. Put your kitchen scraps to work making gourmet mushrooms! For more information, check out this primer. For more information and supplies for growing your own mushrooms at home, or to get a professionally made oyster mushroom starter kit, you can also check out Fungi Perfecti (this is not a paid endorsement), Rhett’s favorite mycoloculture supplier. Growing mushrooms can be easy and a really fun way to get rid of kitchen waste. Give it a try!
