Grow Your Own Mushrooms

Those of us who love growing flowers and vegetables during the summer, often struggle during the winter. The wait between growing seasons can seem in interminable.
I grow a lot of plants indoors that I find very satisfying, but there’s something extra special about growing my own food. For Christmas, number two son gave me a mushroom growing kit. If you haven’t tried one of these, they are fascinating fun. Watching them sprout and grow (something that occurs quite rapidly) is magical. Growing my own gave me a new appreciation for mushrooms. I cannot wait to harvest and sauté them.
They are intricate and quite beautiful when you look at them. This is a wonderful and memorable gift. If you know someone who loves to cook, grow vegetables, or both, and is hard to buy for, give this some consideration. Edible, educational, and great fun.

Those are beautiful! I can imagine they are fun to watch grow. Do you have to pamper them in any way? Will they re-grow after you harvest? More importantly, what does Stanley think about them? ;)

Linda, You have to mist them twice a day using the little bottle that they enclose that you fill with water. They will be grow twice, and then you have to throw the kit away. said...

How much fun! I bet it's so interesting watching them grow!
