Log Out

You can’t say I didn’t try. I gave it two rounds of soaking in the recommended dechlorinated ice water, a paper bag over it to keep it damp and its very own plate to stand on and hardly bothered it at all, no matter how much I wanted to know if it was working. But, after that one surprise initial bloom, my mushroom log has been resolutely unproductive, and I think it may be time to throw in the towel.

Or log. Whatever.

  1. Not to be critical but aren't perfectly good mushrooms of a wide variety readily available? At least your Dad seems to come home with bags of them unless I complain.

  2. Mom– But that's missing the entire point of the home-farming trend, which is to spend great amounts of money and effort to get things you could buy at the grocery store for five dollars.

    Tara– If you spot any shiitakes let me know!
