    I love your channel BUT you are dead wrong with the "filling pathways with mulch and cardboard". I've had my raised garden for 7 years and let me tell you, I did just that and after year 2 or 3 years the mulch and cardboard will start to break down and you will have yourself a weeded mess on your hands my friend. My advice, don't do it!! Inside the raised bed yes, but within the pathway…NO. You're better off using garden landscape, sand and pebble gravel for your walk way and leave the organic components to the raised beds.

    So the answer is yes, cuz fungus decomposes matter. However, ask what the mushrooms were grown on…make sure its mushroom compost that was made from material that produces mushroom for food.

    Mushrooms are able to break down complex molecules so contamination shouldn't be a concern (unless substrate contains heavy metals which is very unlikely).

    What are your thoughts about Leafgro?

    I'd trust horse manure more than chicken or cow manure because people who raise animals for meat are focused on growing the animals big as fast as possible whereas with horses they are more into creating a healthy animal.

    Where I live in Florida, mushroom compost usually has dollar weeds in it, and they are incredibly invasive and difficult to get rid of.

    John, Another informative and extremely well presented garden of knowledge. I LOVE your videos, especially the longer ones. I kind of get in the learning groove with them. I like it that you don't talk a mile a minute and when you are interviewing some person you ask a question and let them actually answer in full AND you are attentive while they speak. Go figure…

    I read that walnut sawdust or shred is not good for gardening because it walnut has a natural weedkiller that is not beneficial for growing?

    Be careful with Horse/cow manure. If they spray herbicides, they all do it, on their hay/grass fields it WILL transfer through to the manure. It will damage your broad leaf plants. Look up aminoparalyd herbicide in Google. No one really knows how long it takes to break down in the soil, and can make it where nothing will your garden for years. If stuff grows the plants can be effected and damaged.
