'Shrooms in Bloom

Posted By on Mon, Jan 10, 2011 at 1:45 PM

I mentioned earlier that my brother received 22 pounds of tamales for Christmas. I asked him to take a picture. He did not comply.

My sister, however, unbidden, has been documenting the progress of her Christmas gift: a shiitake mushroom kit. (Also: Mississippi Natural Products.)


There was some time spent in a misting tent.




And, finally, ready for harvesting after two weeks.


This initial batch of mushrooms were sauteed and used as a topping for burgers. My sister says that they were some of the best she's ever had. Frankly, I'm more than a bit surprised that it worked at all.

According to my sister: "It's been a source of wonderment for everyone who sees it."
