Check out Joy’s mushrooms

By Penny Stine

I brought a seed catalog to the office and shared it with one of my coworkers, Joy Pope, who grows a big garden with her husband. They decided to order a mushroom kit from Park Seed just for fun. 

I'm not sure what came with the kit, or when they got it started, but she told me her husband picked a couple of giant mushrooms, so I asked her to bring in pics to share on the blog. 

 

 

 

 

I've never grown mushrooms, but judging by this pic, and from little I know, I'm assuming you're supposed to keep the box covered in a cool, damp place. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I'm assuming it's OK to take a peek every now and then, just to see what's happening in the box. 

 

Joy said her husband picked a couple a few days ago when they were tiny, but she told him to wait until they got bigger. It obviously didn't take long. 

I may have to add mushrooms to my growing list. I'll bet you could do them in the winter pretty easily.

That’s cool. I bought a shitake kit from Fungi Perfecti once and it was awesome!
