Fresh Homegrown Shiitake for Dinner!
As I look out at the cold and snow, I am warmed by the thought of eating fresh mushrooms!
I recently started offering Mushroom Grow Kits on my website, so I thought I would grow one out to show how easy it is to produce fresh mushrooms indoors!
I picked the Shiitake Mushroom Patch first.
I ordered the kit on Thursday and it arrived at my
door on Monday by UPS.
Then the kit had to go in the refrigerator for 4 days. After that was 4 hours of soaking in water to initiate the flush!
The humidity tent went on and it was misted 4 times a day. I started to see life right away!
That is a perfect Shiitake in my world! I harvested about 1 pound and now it will rest for a couple weeks and I will start the cycle again. I will repeat this 4 or 5 times or until the kit only produces tiny mushrooms. Then comes the bonus…the kit will be used to inoculate some logs!
Have you ever wanted to grow mushrooms, but didn’t know where to start?
Mushroom grow kits are a great way to begin growing mushrooms.
