Why growing fungi at home is beginning to mushroom

An increasing number of gardeners are growing mushrooms in their vegetable patches to improve soil quality and grow food in small spaces. Mushrooms are now cultivated in the kitchen garden at Kew Gardens in south-west London and visitors have been keen to know how they might grow their own. Hélèna Dove, Kew’s head kitchen gardener, says: “Mushrooms have seen a great rise in popularity and we’ve seen a huge amount of interest from visitors since we installed our mushroom beds in Kew’s kitchen garden this autumn.

New sugar maple at Mary Edwards Property

On Oct. 19, the Granby Land Trust planted a young sugar maple near the iconic, old sugar maple in the front field on the GLT’s Mary Edwards Mountain Property. Sadly, the old sugar maple is in decline, having survived several lightning strikes, the most recent which set the tree on fire. In addition, very dry conditions this summer were a hardship for the old tree. Our fingers are crossed that she will have many years left, but the good news is that now the majestic old tree has a young friend to keep her company as she enters her sunset years.
