Here I would love to share with you our travels and adventures as international mushroom consultants. MEMOIRS about husband Pieter Vedder, who was a SCIENTIFIC PIONEER in Mushroom Cultivation Education. His practical handbook is in 9 languages and is called the MUSHROOM BIBLE: https://mariettesbacktobasics.blogspot.com/2020/08/modern-mushroom-growing-2020-harvesting.html

EXCELLENT WAY for spreading germs and what not AT A HOSPITAL!

 For our work, we always had to emphasize that strict HYGIENE is a must for avoiding the spread of all kind of diseases.
And I am talking about the mushroom business!
It ought to be treated like a hospital because we also can be dealing with a virus outbreak; called die-back.
Virus particles easily can attach themselves to spores.

Long hair has to be pulled back.
No long fingernails.
No baggy tops, but tucked in.
No wide/long clothes (skirts, dresses or very baggy pants) sweeping the surface and contaminating other areas with diseases.
We have seen hundred or even thousand times personnel at a hospital, clinic or doctor's office with TOO LONG PANTS.
Sure, most young(er) generations would not know how to decently hem up their pants.
But aside from doing it yourself or having it done, WHY is management not mentioning this?!
THINK about it, an entire workday sweeping up things from the floor, wherever they go.
And mind you, they WILL go a few times to the TOILET as well, using their PANTS like a nice 'dry' mopping rag.
Spreading germs and virus particles, attached to dust or water particles, all around and even taking them HOME.

Have you also noticed this in the medical world?

    1. Cara Olga,
      Certamente, la gestione dovrebbe essere molto severa in questo aspetto!
      Abbracci,

  2. What a sad and frightening state of affairs. And you are right to draw attention to it. Thank you.

    Hygiene is so important. God bless always, Mariette.

      At times we think we're sliding back in time, where strict hygiene did not 'yet' matter... I've never read anyone mentioning this.

  3. Hello Mariette, Another good argument for young people, both male and female, learning basic skills such as sewing or making at least a temporary fix. I can sew on a button in an emergency, but that's about it. However, last night I was proud of myself. I have a quilt that was starting to come open at the seam. After some procrastination, I finally did the job. It turns out that I chose the wrong color and type of thread, and the stitches look like Dr. Frankenstein did them, but the job is done!

    1. Dearest Jim,
      Oh, young people ought to be taught about this at schools!
      We had once an exchange student stay with us (Rotaract) and he too went with us to Florida, with the adopted daughter from Pieter's brother. She had her bathing suit burst open in a seam and he went to the room with her for handing her needle and thread. I told him not to mend it for her; she had to try herself.
      That was the best example and that of the son of my best friend in Germany. He proudly showed his jean shorts that he'd cut off and hemmed by machine from his regular jeans. He proudly told me, Mama has no daughters but she taught me.
      You too can be proud of yourself for doing it!
      Hugs,
      Mariette

  4. Sure doesn't seem very hygienic at all. I would never choose to wear pants that drag the ground anywhere, anytime especially since I live in a very dirty and dusty country. :/

      You are so right about all that! Once wonders about all the germ spreading nowadays.

  5. Ugh, that's something I've never thought of, frankly. However, I've seen mall food kiosk staff in the washroom finish their business and either not wash their hands at all or just rinse them under plain water. Disgusting. No wonder we can't get ahead of the current pandemic, when people can't even practice basic hygiene.

      We've seen this sweeping of the floor for years... There are numerous hygiene issues that need to be stressed more firmly.

  6. Du hast recht, liebe Mariette, Hygiene ist soooo wichtig und es wird oft übersehen. Die Menschen denken nicht nach...

    Liebste Grüße nach Georgia und Euch ein wunderbares Wochenende.

    P.S. das Drosselgartenkissen in meinem Header ist von Anett aus der FadenStille, zu Weihnachten 2009 von ihr extra für mich genäht und bestickt. Ein wunderbarer Schatz, den ich sehr in Ehren halte.

    Wo ist Dein Headerbild geblieben?

    1. Liebe Traudi,
      Ja, es wird zu leicht übersehen und nicht mal korrigiert...
      Danke für die liebste Grüße und ihr auch ein schönes Wochenende.
      Die Anett selber ist einen Schatz; das Kissen auch und gut um in Ehren zu halten.
      Ich hatte Probleme mit mein Headerbild und lasse es 'einfach' so...😉

  8. Bell bottoms is one of those super spreaders even at normal times.
    Simple hygiene is the best way to keep away this monster known as covid.

    1. Dearest Haddock,
      Bell bottoms are not per definition a problem; provided they don't drag over the floor...😉
      The issue is the correct length!
      Hygiene works for all kind of diseases, for keeping them at bay.

  9. Your post is a reminder of how easily disease spreads, in ways we don’t often consider! In the County my son and I live in, our Covid numbers are off the chart. We had been doing amazingly well … Omicron is a different breed. Stay well, you two!

    1. Dearest Helen,
      In our book under 'Some Mushroom Growers Wisdom' we have listed as #2. Everything is everywhere, but the environment selects ~ BAS BECKING.
      We always have to heed our hygiene levels, wherever and whatever we do.

  10. My sweet friend, Mariette -- I've seen medical personnel doing this for decades... even by older adults who should know better. And besides all you stated, it looks tacky and unprofessional. It seems people nowadays (mostly the younger ones as you said) just can't be bothered with simple hygiene. That's why I hate every time my husband has to be in the hospital (which is nearly yearly). You go to the hospital to get well but then you face the fact there are more germies there! Yuck. Hugs to you, my friend!

    1. Dearest Diana,
      Yes, it is a very sad fact as you also observed.
      Being in the hospital is always a big risk as it is a place were all sorts of micro organism can accumulate. Often resulting in a fountain of infection.
      Hugs,
      Mariette

  11. Completely agree! Good practices are super important even more when it comes to health. There are things that I don't even do in my kitchen, imagine in a hospital environment.

      Exactly, one uses common sense and as you mention not even in our own kitchen, let alone in any medical environment.
