MEMOIRS about husband Pieter Vedder, who was a SCIENTIFIC PIONEER in Mushroom Cultivation Education.

Blink TV Australia used our Marl Cave Mushroom Growing Image in Guillaume's Paris Episode 9

 Already in July, we got a very courteous request from Melinda Nassif | Post Producer Coordinator for Blink TV Australia.
We had to release a legal statement for granting them permission to use our postcard image. 
You can see the full post's link below.
This is the image we granted them permission to use in their series: Guillaume's Paris Episode 9 ←click link for watching the special video.
Image is visible at 05:13 and before that they explain how those white limestone buildings in Paris came about.
Blink TV Australia did an excellent job in explaining things from the past!
Both of us are grateful for having been able to provide them this rare image.

    1. Dearest Debby,
      It sure is great for having been able to hand them just what they searched for.
      That documentary is wonderful and it explains about the origin of those caves.

  2. Very cool! It's a wonderful thing to know the work done over decades is still relevant, sought after and referred to even now.

      This was such a great video to view and informative about this long–history of mushroom growing in such caves.

  3. Really so interesting to know that mushrooms are still being cultivated underground. Most people never even think about where their food comes from and I bet a lot of people have no idea mushrooms (and endive) are grown in such a way, in such a place.

    1. Dearest Tammy,
      Yes, they are still being grown in caves and their quality is superior—rock solid high quality due to the perfect climate.
      Personally I've been lucky for having visited such marl caves in the south of my province Limburg: https://mariettesbacktobasics.blogspot.com/2020/05/visiting-dutch-mushroom-grower-in-marl.html
      Also for Belgian endive it is perfect as both don't need light to grow!
      Most people indeed have no clue...
      Hugs,

  5. Interessant Mariette.

    Net als witlof dat in het donker groeit.
    Voortaan kijk ik iets anders naar de champignons.

    Lieve groet,

    1. Beste Hilly,
      Ja het is zeker interessant om te zien hoe champignons ook kunnen groeien—net als vroeger in het begin van de teelt.
      Witlof ook en het is maar een heel kleine kans dat jij ooit grotten champignons zult kopen; Nederland heeft de beste high tech kwekerijen!
      Liefs,
      Mariette

      Thank you and sharing some of the mushroom's history is what we love doing.
      It is fabulous that some mushrooms are still being grown that way!

  9. Hi, Mariette!
    I watched the video and although Paris is on my Cities to visit list, there seems to be so much more I don't know.
    It's amazing what they can grow underground and seing the pictures of your other posts, I wonder if any of those places and caves still exist today...
    Lots of hugs to you and Pieter!
    :)

    1. Dearest Paula,
      Paris has so many hidden treasures and seeing where the white limestone buildings came from is in itself quite a reveal!
      As the person in the video speaks, there seem still to be some mushroom growing at present.
      Also in other areas of France and this one seems to do that from March till early October:
      https://mariettesbacktobasics.blogspot.com/2020/03/the-living-mushroom-cave-in-le-puy.html
      Always superior quality!

    2. I just read your earlier post about the mushrooms in the cave at Le Puy Notre Dame and I'm glad that the cave is still being used to grow mushrooms by Jacky Roulleau and his son. :)
      Something I did not now, was that France and the Netherlands had so much intertwined stories.
      What is sad is that your paternal great-great-great Grandfather's brother died at the age of 19. Him and so many young people that never could make a family and have a future...
      Those cotton tea towels from Le Jacquard Français are beautiful and I'm sorry that they no longer celebrate Bastille day with their USA customers, and have even closed some of their stores.
      It seems that what is good and has quality, is being surpassed by cheap and sometimes not so chic...
      Lots of hugs!
      :)

    3. Dearest Paula,
      The Low Countries once used to reach as far south as north of Paris and that surely left some cultural marks—both ways.
      Napoleon divided it into different countries and created Belgium...
      Any war is sad and so many young lives sacrifice so much and all for the greed of power by a few.
      So true that good quality and age–old craftsmanship had to make way for cheap imports from China and made from often inferior quality.
      Well, the chic is more a feeling of pride and treasuring good quality items as a family heirloom!
      Hugs,
      Mariette

    4. Napoleon also wanted to conquer Portugal. If he had succeeded, I would be talking french, today. ;) Oh là là!
      The same is happening here in Portugal: cheap and low quality are replacing chic and high quality, so I'm puting what I learn from you to use and looking for what is good and leaving what has no quality in the shelves.
      Lots of hugs to you and Pieter and have a blessed weekend!
      :)

    5. Dearest Paula,
      Yes, that is a clever decision and we don't HAVE to follow the masses in buying what others prescribe as being 'trendy' or 'hot' or whatever sales–catch they invent!
      All for the goal of sales and never as a goal for us to enhance our NEST.
      But that is up to us—provided you have the guts to decide for yourself!
      Hugs,
      Mariette

    6. I couldn't have wrote it better! If we have the guts to decide for ourselves, we will be happier and will live a true life, not everybody's life.
      Lots of hugs!

  13. How interesting Mariette. I actually watched this episode of Guillaume in Paris. How nice of them to ask for permission to use your photo.

    1. Dearest Helen,
      Yes, this was very courteous of them for asking permission.
      This is such an interesting history of Paris and people now maybe understand why they were often called Champignon de Paris.
      Just found a video, in French, from a town north of Paris, the birth place of novellist Alexander Dumas. AND in the end of that video I saw the exact same post card that Pieter received from Claron. It was the Grandfather that started growing there... Interesting history and I've placed that link beneath the image.
      Hugs,
      Mariette
