Back in November I started a mushroom patch by layering grain spawn with straw and mulch. It finally fruited today and I picked my first Wine Cap (Stropharia rugosoannulata) mushroom! I wasn’t sure if it would work, since it’s a very DIY method and nothing was sterile, I didn’t have a consistent watering schedule, and honestly a lot of things can go wrong when trying to grow mushrooms; I wasn’t even sure if it was the right season for starting the patch. I ate this mushroom for a late breakfast
