Did you know that it is very easy to grow your own mushrooms right in the comfort of your home? Thanks to backtotheroots.com it is. The hubby loves mushrooms so this was a perfect addition to his “gardening.” All it takes is the starter kit from the company and a little bit of time and patience.
Hubby took the cover off of the box and read the instructions. All he needed to get them ready was a container large enough to soak the bag inside and a knife. Then it was a matter of cutting open the plastic cover…
…which he did making a slice down the center, then a cut across the top and bottom opening each side carefully lifting the plastic. It was now ready to get soaked.
First it had to come out of the cardboard. But save the box! You will need it.
Take the contents out and place it in a clean bucket or deep pot. Just as long as it’s something in which you can submerge the growth material. Then add water to cover and let it soak for at least 8 hours.
After the 8 hours is up you put it back in the box and let it sit in a cool, dark place. It needs to be watered two times a day. Just a teaspoon or two at a time. I can tell you that ours started sprouting in two days! I’ll report back when the mushrooms are grown and ready to be harvested. You know I’ll make him something good with them.
Mushrooms are good for you, you know. They are low in calories, fat, gluten, cholesterol free and very low in sodium. They are also good at neutralizing free radicals. When I can buy them in bulk I do because you can easily dehydrate mushrooms for future use.
