Project 365, Day 48: Shitake Mushrooms

Shitake Mushrooms, originally uploaded by Here Be Dragons.

Day 48 is a photo of some shitake mushrooms which we are cultivating at home. At the Maker Faire, when we saw that there was a booth selling "grow mushrooms at home" kits, I knew Connor would love that. (Actually, Joy and Amy were the ones who first spotted the mushrooms, and knew that they'd be a hit with Connor). So, we bought a couple of kits - these shitake mushrooms, and also some oyster mushrooms. The oysters haven't quite sprouted yet, but when they do, I'll take some pictures of them, too.

There are a few more photos of these mushrooms here:

Re: Shrooms
Thanks. I'll let you know if/when we start growing them. I finally got my vegetable box for mother's day so I've planted tomatoes, cukes, peppers, okra, melons. Mushrooms would be a great addition, though not in the box me thinks.
