Our first mushrooms
This is purely a learning experience, but we've produced our first mushrooms. I bought one of those mushroom growing kits that you see in many of the gardening catalogs. It's overpriced for the amount of mushrooms it will grow, but I'm viewing it as a stepping stone to learning to grow our own mushrooms in compost and in logs on the back 20.
Today's harvest was 8 ounces, which is the weight of those little boxes of mushrooms you buy in the store.
And no surprise, they were really delicious!
I'm looking forward to learning more about growing mushrooms, so we can add yet another home-grown food to our larder.
