Shitake Mushroom Farm

In September when Richard first started at Berkeley, we all met up for lunch at the Ferry Building to catch the SF Farmers Market. There's a mushroom store there that sells mushroom minifarms. Months later, Lil visits SF and I run into the store again. This time I decided to try growing Shitake Mushrooms. $20 for a log of poo (or so it looked) which would potentially feed me for 6 months! Sweet. I didn't know what to expect and definitely the last 2 weeks completely exceeded my expectations. The shitake mushrooms grew way bigger than I thought and they tasted like fresh meat! I can't wait until the next batch :)

Take a look at my gallery to see what I mean.
