A new experience...

Our daughter and her family are moving out of state for military obligations for a year.  She left her "mushroom log" with me.  Lo and behold, yesterday I found this beautiful Shitake mushroom on it!  I've never grown mushrooms on my own, but this was a college assignment for her.  I feel honored!  (Also I'm looking forward to cooking it.  I think I hear some shrimp calling me from the freezer. :)


  1. I have wanted to try growing mushrooms. That is a beauty.

  2. I am so glad another one grew! I am also glad you took a picture! I hope that when we come back home that I can inoculate more logs and grow lots more. That was a lot of fun.

  3. i remember when we ate mom's mushroom she grew on the mushroom log. it was DELICIOUS. did you cook it while lydia was there? i know you told me but i can't remember. was it good? i bet it was. are you going to grow another one? i would if i were you. they are delicious.

    1. Sommer, I actually have had 2 more off of the log! I don't know if it will make any more or not. We'll see! And now I can't remember if Lydia had some or not. :)
