Hey everyone, thought i would try here. I'm a new permie and quite a rookie at that but was wondering what major/basic tips there may be for those of us starting off with small spaces for gardening?? Specifically mushroom propagation? I'm from Australia and came across this great source https://www.milkwood.net/course/small-space-gardening-160207/ but was hoping they would provide a downloadable pdf, not really wanting to take the workshop. Fellow permies, advise away!

you can purchase mushroom spawn in ready to use bags or you can buy plugs if you have virgin logs.
For small spaces the bagged set ups are nice plus after they are spent you can then take the spawn and reuse it to inoculate logs or new bags of wood chips.

There are plenty of articles on small space gardening on the internet. do a search for small space gardening. MEN, GRIT and lots of other web sites have most all the information already written up.

Adam: How's your humidity levels? Low ==> Harder to grow mushrooms. High ==> Easier to grow mushrooms.

@Bryant Redhawk thank you so much for the reply and advise, will definitely be reusing spawn! Just started browsing through GRIT's site, also very helpful so far.

@Joseph, humidity levels usually fall between 60-75% so it might work out ok?
