Mushrooms!

We've been on a mushroom kick recently. We've ordered at least twice from Fungi Perfecti, 8 mushroom kits at 600 plug spawn. I attended a workshop on April 4 at the Abundance Foundation in Pittsboro, to get me started. I came home with three logs with plugs from Shitake and Oyster mushrooms.

It turned out the instructor, Bob Armantrout, had attended a workshop from the man behind Fungi Perfecti, Paul Stamets. We've now got two of his books, Mycelium Running: How Mushrooms Can Help Save The World and Growing Gourmet & Medicinal Mushrooms. I've mostly looked at the pictures, and read small sections, but Alexa has read most of them.

I intend to post much more about mushrooms, and show results.
