The Mushroom Project

by booberriepie

Do you have project foods? Foods you really want to like, but just don’t?

I have a long list — and the most recent food I’ve decided to tackle is mushrooms. Firstly, mushrooms are one of those foods that sneak into everything, without warning. Lasagna, pizza, veggie burgers, etc. Disliking them is inconvenient. And the people I know who like mushrooms seem to LOVE them. I want in on that.

Anyway, I figured the best way to appreciate mushrooms would be to grow them — doesn’t everything taste better when it comes from home?

So, I picked up an oyster mushroom growing kit from Far West Fungi, and a few weeks later…

BABY MUSHROOMS!

BABY MUSHROOMS!

And eventually they grew all the way up and I harvested them…
