I purchased a little kit to grow my own mushrooms. I believe the purchase was categorized as a “self birthday present,” which means I got the darn thing in July.
It’s almost September.
Before today, I’d grown one crusty mushroom that didn’t even taste good. The instructions on the box promised a 1 1/2 pound harvest in approximately 10 days.
I had a little discussion with the mushroom box a couple days ago. I said it had to produce mushrooms SOON, or it was going into the compost.
It listened! Several little mushrooms greeted me this morning! It’s a fungi miracle!
I’m going to interpret this as a life lesson — just when you think your box of mushroom spores will never produce mushrooms, it does!
Mushroom boxes (and life) are unpredictably wonderful.
