Mushrooms II!

After several days of looking progressively more mildewy and gross and starting to bulge weirdly, our mushroom kit has sprouted little pinhead mushrooms. We spritz the block periodically and it is (sorry!) mushrooming almost before our very eyes. We wish we'd done some photos to show how it has progressed.

The instructions say that it is possible to do a second harvest from the same kit, which is nice.

It's a very fun family activity, and I think it would be nice for homeschoolers. It's kind of like a pet that you eat.

The first people to eat mushrooms must have been REALLY hungry.
