One of the Christmas presents that I bought Hubbs this year
was two "grow your own mushroom" kits.
A week before Christmas, two boxes of mushroom compost arrived.
Hubbs added water to his two boxes and set them in the pantry on the floor
beneath the shelves....constant temperature, little light.
Within a week, tiny mushrooms erupted and grew and grew.
Today we harvested those mushrooms.
and White Button...
These boxes will continue to produce new mushrooms
that we can harvest every two weeks or so,
for several months.
Part of today's harvest was cleaned and sauteed for
our breakfast omelets.
Fresh farm eggs with fresh spinach, fresh mushrooms
and aged gouda cheese....Yum!!
The rest of the mushrooms were cleaned and placed in the refrigerator
for use in Sunday's dinner.
If you are interested in growing your own mushrooms,
you can order a kit here.
