Fall is creeping up on us here in Maine. Days are getting shorter, shadows longer, and the night air is crisp. Before snowfall, we’ve got a great window for some outdoor mushroom projects. Those of you who experience milder winters can grow mushrooms all year. We’re looking at you West Coasters and our mushroom friends in the South!
Follow along for some late season ideas and tips for different regions.
Mushroom beds can be installed anytime during the year, as long as the mycelium has a couple of weeks to become established before freezing temperatures hit. You can look up your region’s first frost dates to plan out inoculations.
Most mushrooms we make beds with are perennial in temperate climates, meaning they’ll continue to grow year after year despite snowfall. This includes wine caps and most of our oyster mushrooms. As heat-loving mushrooms, pink oysters are perennial only in subtropical and tropical regions but grow well as annuals during the summer months of colder zones.
