My Mushroom Box

June 10, 2012 @ 12 noon

Darling daughter of the oldest variety (that would be Remy, the one that's teaching in Haiti) sent me a mushroom box for Mother's Day this year. I followed the directions to a tee and then sat back and waited for the marvelous results. And waited. And waited....

Finally, just over a month after I'd set up my box, and as I was getting ready to throw it out, I noticed a bit of growth had occurred! I'd complained to the company as the box said it would take no more than 10 days for growth to happen. They sent me a fresh box and I was getting ready to throw this box out and start anew when - yippee - the mushrooms finally are growing! And growing. And growing...

expecting sauteed mushrooms any day now!


  1. We had that exact same brand and harvested ~2 lbs of oyster mushrooms! The first harvest did take a while.

  2. It sure looks like a place where mushrooms would grow...good luck!

  3. well, its looking like you're gonna have a bumper crop of those teensy little 'shrooms

    BTW .. Hilary named your duck post a POTW! Nice!!!

  4. It looks as though it has a mind of its own- are you sure it doesn't have cannibalistic tendencies? LOL

  5. So glad they sprouted, but my eyes are on the prize...the prize being the lambs-quarter bed you have growing!! (Just pick it back some before I come home, the young leaves are yummier!) See you soon...xoxo

  6. I love to eat those things, but down deep they creep me out. Personally I wouldn't turn my back on them.

  7. Wow...once they started they really started! Amazing to see. What a unique gift.

  8. What a unique yet endearing gift. Tsannie, you can do a lot of things with your gift, because mushrooms are both for food and medicinal purposes. I'd fix a mushroom vinaigrette if I were you. Hehe


Thank you for taking the time to leave a thought. It's appreciated! xoabb
