    Manda, I couldn't agree more: dried mushrooms are fairly bleuch unless you have time to ponce about with them.

    However, as I was going through my biscuit tin I came across some French shitake mushrooms and some champignons de paris bruns suitable for growing on wood. I haven't tried them yet, but reading the instructions it would appear you soak the wood, drain it, sprinkle the culture over it, put it in a plastic bag for 4-8 weeks, then take it out and water regularly. You probably know more about this sort of thing than I do! As I'm in the middle of sorting out your beans I'd be happy to bung you some of this in the envelope I'm sending plus some translated instructions if you're interested? Let me know.

    Wow! Thanks for the offer Jane, I wouldn't mind trying having a go at some of the champignons de paris bruns. I'm jaundiced by my tasting of the shitake and say bleugh to them though.

    Of course you might be able to get a good swop for them?
