We just finalized the 2nd week of construction (or deconstruction should I say) and the barn looks like a war zone, but as Jason likes to say “it has to get worse before it gets better”. A big, big thank you to all our helpers: (in order of appearance) Chihiro Garland, Jan Tofferi, Colby Epstein, Mary Sweeney, Amber Sweeney, Nina Nichols, Mike Moog, Carlos Gallardo and Louis Guiller.
Bertha is home! Thank you NH Mushroom Company for letting us borrow this massive autoclave and the St Johnsbury Mushroom King, Bob Brown, for helping Jason to bring it to VT. We truly have a Mushroom Mafia going on here in New England, and that’s the best kind there is.
We also brought home a ribbon mixer, which was as you can see, properly and securely placed right a way…
Dump run score: we have break room chairs!
Spiderwebs, rotten wood and weird nails all over the basement ceiling
My brother Carlos came from Colombia to give us a hand and it’s so good to have him here I may have to hide his passport
Let there be light
I think I’m getting a promotion!
This was one of those 5 minute projects that take 4 hours… I was like “I’m gonna put the dog gate up, be right back” and ended up having to remove and replace the door frame, fixing some rot and installing a new door latch.
All work and no play makes mushrooms grow dull
Stay tuned as next week we are actually going to start building stuff.
