Kathy sent us a mushroom patch for Christmas. We rigged up a tent, as they directed and have faithfully sprayed it each day and now we are the proud parents of 7 very pretty and fast growing mushrooms.
When they are large enough we will cut them off and cook them. They say they taste like lobsters so we will make a lobster newburgh from them and see. The directions said we could get between one and two pounds of mushrooms from this patch and that the brown spores that you see in there will still be active so you can inoculate old hard wood stumps or logs with that and grown some more mushrooms outside. We will try that this summer. In the mean time I will have to just tend to my pineapples. I have 7 or 8 of those growing and the only problem with them is we are not here when they ripen. Last year we had four that had pineapples, Patty got one and then some one took the other three. this year we will put a sign on them, “Please do not pick the pineapples” and maybe she can get all of them. She eats the pineapple and plants the tops in her garden, she must have two dozen there now but her yard does not get much sun so she doesn’t get as many pineapples from her patch. Have a great day.
