Aren't they beautiful?
I know, you're probably wondering what the heck this is and why on earth I'm showing it to you. One, they're baby mushrooms sprouting from my Grow Your Own Mushroom kit from Back To The Roots . Two, I'm easily entertained. Also, I felt like a proud momma and had to show off the babies.
Now you may wonder why I am growing my own mushrooms when I live in the woods. Well, my woods, while abundant in the fall, are short on mushrooms in the spring. Secondly because this is the kind of company I like to support. These little kits use recycled coffee grounds as growing media and if you post a pic of your fully grown mushrooms on their facebook page, the company will donate a growing kit to an elementary classroom, you have to love that.
And also because it's just cool.
I can't wait to eat them.
