How To Grow Gourmet Mushrooms On Logs In Your Backyard

Gourmet mushrooms are a very tasty and healthy food but can be a bit pricey, but why pay if you can grow them at home. In this video my friend Mark shows us how to grow Shiitake & Oyster mushrooms in your own back yard.

As a vegan, do you consume honey? Or wear wool? I'm confused as to which animal-based products a vegan would avoid.

Yes I Love honey, But I buy Local honey from bee keepers who rest there bees in the winter months. I also would wear wool, although i don’t have wool made thing besides a hat. The word “Vegan” is just a word although you there are people who follow certain criteria. I don’t eat animals or things from them(Besides honey), I live on plant base diet.  But the word is there to help better understand what lifestyle we lean more too. But in a nut shell I do consume honey. :)

Watching your videos make me think of how maybe a seed exchange program could really make a dent on the issue of world hunger. teaching people how to grow their own food and pass that knowledge on would be amazing

Couldnt of said it better.

I recently had has the opportunity to visit an urban farm in Queens New York. Its run by a man named Gill, which him and his team has been squatting on. From raised beds to using mushroom mycelium to re-mediate the soil, He uses the principles of permaculture  to create an thriving Ecosystem In the middle of an urban city.

Hey dude I found some "Passion flowers" and some of there seed pods and I was gonna grow some but idk how to like get the seeds out of them.. You have any experience with them?

No I dont, But seed pods are very easy to work with. If you can wait for them to fully muture on the plant before picking them. You can even let then pods dry out on the plant, then you will be able to get the seeds inside for planting.

Hello! I'm pretty new to gardening, and have been doing some research on it, but to be honest I feel pretty overwhelmed with all the information i've come to find. I'm looking to plant veggies, and herbs, but my space is very limited. Is there any specific seasonal seeds you recommend to start growing in the summer? You make everything look so easy! maybe I'm just all over the place :]

Hello, well it actually is very easy. Around this time you will be getting ready to plant a fall garden. So greens and roots veggies. if you have limited space that is great for learning. I would say learn how the soil works, its alive build your soil and you will build strong plants ( its that easy). So just do a Littie Google search on what to plant for a fall garden. If you want send me a pic of your space. :)

dude do you like drink protein shakes or something? I've been thinking about going vegan but kinda want to know what to do for that protein..

Hey! Ok so I don’t drink protein Shakes, Unless your counting a green smoothie. Greens Greens Greens. One cup Of spinach has 7 grams of protein, Kale 5, and there are some greens have more. But I eat alot of leafy greens. Hemp, Non dairy milks ( like Hemp or almond), Which is better if you learn to make yourself, Nut butters, tofu,lentils,beans, etc. There are so many foods that have protein, But we live in a country that proteins are big products, we are pushed to eat High protein foods. But Your body cannot process all the protein in a “protein shake”. Anyway there are so many foods that contain proteins, aminos, vitamins, all the things you need that are “Vegan”, And in my opinion when you remove all the other stuff you are allowing yourself to step into a new world of foods which will amaze you and make you learn.

If it's not too personal, might I ask about your story that led you to veganism? That is of course assuming you weren't always vegan.

Well I guess it really started when I was 15, I use to trouble with migraines. So my moms took me to one of my family members who owns an herb shop to get me some herbs for this. There I met I My great grandmothers cousin, Who was a Rasta. Rastafarian don’t eat meat, and lean more in the natural direction. So we sat that an talk about these things, and I guess he had a strong influence on me. So then I stopped eating pork, then as time went on I cut all these things out. Was a vegetarian in High School, Then became vegan. I already had a deep interest in Botany & Plants since a young age so I started to grow things that I can eat lol. Not in to much detail but it went something like  that. :)

Quick question, do you start most of your seeds indoor or do you typically go with the direct sow method? If you do start your seeds indoor, could you pass along any good tips for me? Like grow light vs. a sunny window area? Thanks!

Hello! Ok so it all depends on the seeds. For instance brassicas, plants like kale, cabbage, Broccoli etc… You can start buy direct seed or indoor. There are time were i take a hand full of kale seeds and throw them on top of the soil, or times where I start them indoor and use a grow light to speed it up a Lilttle. Its really all preference. But some things don’t like to be transplanted, Like sunflowers ( although it can be done). But it depends on the seed. Hope I helped! :)
