The mushroom kit has arrived. I ordered an indoor shiitake mushroom kit from Territorial Seed company about a month ago and it finally arrived today. I did not buy the mushroom kit because I like them. Just the opposite. The Handsome Husband LOVES mushrooms and I thought this might be a cool science experiment for the kids.
How many people do you know who are growing mushrooms in their homes? Okay, I don’t want to know the answer to that. It is supposed to produce between 2-3 lbs of mushrooms over a period of 4-6 months. What fun. I’ll have to track my progress to see if that’s true. Talk about eating local. So after reading the directions I discovered I need to refrigerate the mushroom kit for 3 more days before setting up shop on the kitchen counter. So for now it sits in the frig alongside a 5lb bag of carrots.
