  1. Only mushroom I’ve been able to grow outdoors in the high desert is oyster. You might be able to grow Lion’s Mane in a small shed where you can control temperature and humidity.

    1. We might grow some oyster shrooms too. Our new in-ground winter greenhouse in the walapini is performing quite well and it’s a lot more humid and warmer at night. Still struggling with keeping it from overheating on those sunny warm days. We could dig out a little chamber for even more intense temperature control for mushrooms that don’t need light or very little light.
      Appreciate your feedback, I just quit eating meat and love mushrooms.
