Sources for mushroom compost in Chicago?
Hi- I live in Evanston, which is just North of Chicago, and I am looking for sources of real mushroom compost. I've heard that there is a mushroom farm somewhere near Rolling Meadows on Oakton maybe. Apparently you bring your own bag, and the mushroom compost is $1 a bag. Has anybody here been there? Are there any bags of mushroom compost that are better than what the big box stores have? I know that what most of the big box stores carry is not true mushroom compost. I was at Anton's today, and they had mushroom compost for $4.50 a bag, but I am not sure if it is any better than what I can get at any of the big box stores like Home Depot.
Anybody know of any cheap sources for vermiculite near Evanston too? I've heard that Menards is cheap, but any other stores? Thanks, Nancy
