Listening to a Peter McCoy interview on The Survival Podcast from a couple years ago,
http://www.thesurvivalpodcast.com/mccoy-on-mushroom-cultivation
and he mentions three companion plantings of enormous utility to folks raising food. I thought I'd dupe the info here in hopes of eliciting more examples of companion planting with fungi.

King Stropharia (Stropharia rugosoannulata) pairs well with sweet corn;

Elm Oyster (Hypsizygus ulmarius) improves the growth of all Brassicas;

Nameko (Pholiota microspora) anecdotally boosts the health of grape plantings (Peter: if you see this, have you confirmed this or found more evidence?).

 
Politics is a circus designed to distract you from what is really going on. So is this tiny ad:
