I Stand Corrected.
Steve S.emailed me the truth about commercial mushrooms. Turns out I was wrong. Theyre not grown in cow poop. I think that they were originally. It was always my understanding that the first commercial mushrooms were grown in abandoned coal mines in Pennsylvania, and they were grown on cow manure. Maybe they were, but now it’s much more sanitary, Most of the mushrooms are still grown in Pennsylvania not far from where I was born. Here’s an article.
I’ve done quite a bit of wild mushroom hunting in my day. No kidding. I’d always try them out on Frau Grace, and if she lived, then I’d eat them. Years ago I was in Norway staying with the afore mentione3d Dag, and he had to go out in the morning. I w2as left there in his house with nothing to eat, and then I noticed mushrooms growing on his lawn. I brought them in, cooked them and ate them. When Dag returned he asked my if I had had breakfast. I told him about it. He was aghast. For two days he kept looking at me funny like, expecting me to go into convulsions. Well I didn’t. They were blewits, a very tasty species.
I’m leaving tomorrow for my place up north.If my posts are a little spotty, that’s why.
