Introduction

Growing mushrooms is a lot easier than you may think. It’s cheap, it’s fun, and you get delicious, organic, high-quality produce out of it! When I first started looking into growing my own mushrooms I felt overwhelmed because the information appeared very technical, and while the instructions I received made sense, I wasn’t sure how to actually do it and I doubted my own capabilities and understanding. I got in contact with a local mushroom hobbyist and connoisseur, Milo Olson, who explained how it all works. I got hands on experience seeing how he grows his mushrooms and now I am confident that I can too. On top of learning how to grow my own mushrooms at home, Milo took me on my first wild mushroom hunt! During our adventure I had the privilege of picking his brain about all of my mushroom related questions. Actually, I now have an excellent grasp on how to cultivate my own mushrooms at home. The process is straight-forward and you can harvest a substantial crop from even a small area.

Passiflora Incarnata, Purple Passion Flower

There are hundreds of variety of Passiflora, commonly known as Passionflower.  Passionflower is native to America and may also be known as Maypop or Apricot Vine. Most varieties are vines such as Passiflora Incarnata but Passiflora varieties may also come as shrubs or even trees. Many, but not all Passiflora, have edible fruit and medicinal uses. Passiflora has been around for a very long time cultivated by Native American Indians even before the 1400′s.

The flowers are very showy and elegant, providing a tropical feel to any garden with a multitude of colors. Passiflora is certainly one of the most amazing plants for creative gardeners to have.

Fungus Gnat

I never really thought I would have pest issues, especially inside my house where I keep the most of my potted plants. But I, unfortunately,  bought a bag of Kelloggs brand potting soil from Home Depot and received an infestation of small Fungus Gnats. Not that the Kellogg brand is to blame – when bags have holes in them they can start an infection of pests from any source – even from other brands they sit next to at the store. I’ve also seen friends receive these same (or similar) pests from potted plants bought at Eisley Nursery in Auburn. It can literally happen to anyone, anywhere…
