Oyster Mushrooms?

Last weeks digging meant that I was hobbling around like an old woman with a bad back for a few days. This means that the rest of the paths will have to wait as will the plans to get some horse manure from the farm.

Have been also attempting to grow some oyster mushrooms in straw. Less strenuous. So far I have got a bag of damp looking straw but it seems like there is a bit of action happening at the bottom of the bag. The spores are supposed to take 4 weeks to grow, I cleverly wrote down when they would be ready and lost the piece of paper. Typical. I think they have been there for 3 weeks so I am moving them to a warmer place to see if it gets them going a bit.
