the kitchen gardener: mushrooms!
January 21, 2013 § 1 Comment
oh, also? i’m growing mushrooms in my kitchen. AND NOT ACCIDENTALLY.
i picked up a mushroom-growing kit at EGGPLANT on one of my cheese-making supply excursions. It’s a pretty neat concept– the kits are made up of inoculated coffee ground waste in a handy little cardboard container.
truth be told, this was sometime before Christmas, and I had honestly given up hope that the little guys would ever grow. Then this weekend, I peek at the kit, only to see a few teeny tiny mushrooms starting to grow. look! they’re the weird looking round things in the lower left-hand corner.
it’s possible i’m more excited about this than i should be. but MUSHROOMS!
