Growing Your Own Oyster Mushrooms

Who knew it was so easy to grow your own edible mushrooms at home! I'm always looking for new ways to eat fresh food that I grow. Not to mention keeping up my need to "garden" in the winter. Have you read my about me?

I came across this site: backtotheroots.com and ordered a kit immediately.

I got a little excited and ripped the box open before I realized I wanted to take a picture. 

They claim that you can grow up to 1.5 pounds of oyster mushrooms in 10 days. 
The first step is to slice a 3X5 inch "plus sign" in the front of the box (behind the cardboard cutout that I partially tore off above)

Next, you take the bag out of the cardboard box and soak it in water for 24 hours. After the ingredients in the plastic bag are completely soaked through, you place the plastic bag back into the cardboard box. 

You can keep your box on your kitchen counter, spraying it twice-a-day near the slits your created.

Can't wait to share my updates on this fun project!
