Here is a look at a few of the mushrooms that will be going to the Farmer’s Market tomorrow (23 May 2015).
This week the Boonville Farmer’s Market is being held at its regular time from 10-1230 in the Boonville Hotel parking lot followed by a special event at the Madrones in Philo from 1-4.
Three Hericium species will be available this week and the shiitakes are getting closer to fruiting with every passing day.
Hericium americanum (Bear’s head) is winding down. This cycle has been a market-test to see how well people like it so the availability is still limited. If it does well at this weekend’s market I’ll start up another run of it and it will return to production in a few weeks.
Hericium coralloides (Coral tooth) will be there in very limited numbers for the lucky few people who can grab them first.
And the Hericium erinaceus (Lion’s Mane) will be there of course.
This was the view inside of the fruiting chamber today:
These bags are heading towards being ready for next week:
And I thought it might be time for another tour inside of the fruiting chamber:
