News from the Adair County Garden Club

The Spring of 2012 the Adair County Garden Club held a couple of classes at the Trabue House to teach people how to grow their own mushrooms.

Yesterday I opened up the little area that I had my logs in and, much to my surprise, I had some Oyster mushrooms growing.


I cut a few off and cooked them in butter and onion salt and they were soooooo goood.

I cooked the stem and all because I have never had Oyster mushrooms and didn't know what I was doing. The stems were chewy but the tops were so tender.

Come Spring, you may see some of the mushrooms for sale at the Farmers Market here in Adair County. If you like to eat mushrooms and buy them from the grocery store, then you need to try them when they are fresh grown. What a difference. - melewi

2012-10-16 - Beautiful Joppa, Adair Co., KY - Photo by Maury E. Lewis. Using techniques and starter spores from an Adair County Garden Club seminar she attended last year at the Trabue House, Maury E. Lewis, Beautiful Joppa, KY, is now reaping delectable benefits and, hopefully, future garden profits. She's already kitchen tested them, and writes, "Yesterday I opened up the little area that I had my logs in and, much to my surprise, I had some Oyster mushrooms growing. I cut a few off and cooked them in butter and onion salt and they were soooooo goood." Maybe next year locally grown mushrooms will be widely available. Maury says in the accompanying article she's thinking of marketing them at the Adair Farmers Market.
