One thing that I want to try next is growing mushrooms. I have attended several workshops, but just haven’t gotten around to doing it. This spring I hope to purchase a few logs or maybe try to inoculate a few logs of my own.
In the meantime, I stumbled upon the Back to the Roots oyster mushroom kit, which looked pretty neat and would provide a fun project for the kids and I to do. I ordered one of Amazon, got it started, and we are about half way to harvesting our first crop of oyster mushrooms.
I was worried at first because it didn’t seem to be growing. However, around day four, they took off and I swear they are growing so fast that I notice a difference every couple of hours. The kids really dig this too, because every time they wake up in the morning or come home from school, the mushrooms are noticeably bigger!
I predict some delicious stir-fry in the near future!
