Welcome to Gilmore House, Bed and Breakfast, Blairgowrie, Perthshire, Scotland

This blog is my random ramblings and photos of what is going on in the B&B, my life, but generally my little jaunts out which I hope will give you a taster of all the wonderful excursions to do in our area.

Growing Mushrooms



As regular readers will know I am quite keen on picking chantrelle mushrooms when they are in season. Due to the extreme dry spell we are having there are not many about where I go a foraging and the ones that have come through are very dry. Last Sunday I went to the Royal Highland Show and purchased a Woodland Oyster mushroom growing kit from Ardnamushrooms stand in the food hall. So it is all set up and in the new shed as the temperature is perfect for mushroom growing, so we shall have to wait and see the results. I am now inspired to grow more mushrooms especially as I get through quite a lot at breakfast time and it is easy to obtain button/chestnut mushroom spawn.
