This past weekend we had a little family adventure when myself, my mom, my sister, and my brother attended a workshop to learn how to grow mushrooms. My mom and I have recently been learning a lot about how to make a lot of our own food and just make sure we are using a lot less processed and preserved food and instead using fresh, whole foods, and even growing our own when possible. And my brother has basically become a small farmer himself! I love mushrooms, so as soon as my sister-in-law asked if we were interested in going to a mushroom growing workshop, I was super excited to try it out.
The actual process of “planting” the mushrooms is really quite easy and a lot faster than I expected, but after you prepare the logs it takes 6-9 months until you start getting mushrooms! All in all I am happy we learned this new skill and I am anxious to see how our logs do (be brought 3 home with us), but since you have to wait so long for the logs to fruit we will still be buying them from the store for some time
