White cap button mushrooms


I'm having a go at mushrooms.  Unfortunately, I didn't read the blurb properly when I bought the mushroom spawn, so I'm making do with multi-purpose compost as a growing medium instead of composted straw or horse manure, neither of which I have, nor do I have time to make, before the spawn is past its "best by" date.  I thought I was buying a kit....
So, in the garage, two deep trays of damp compost, sprinkle on the spawn (50g), mix in a bit and cover with damp newspaper. Wait for a few days...
