Shiitake Mushroom Kit
This is one of the coolest things I've seen in a while.
With the Shiitake Mushroom Kit, you can grow your own mushrooms. It consists of sterlized, enriched sawdust fully colonized with a select Chinese strain of Lentinula edodes (shiitake mushroom). Hmm, we're having shiitake mushrooms tonight in beef barley vegetable soup, although the mushrooms came from a plastic container wrapped with plastic wrap. It would be much nicer to pick some from my own patch!
This kit comes with illustrated instructions. Harvest every 2 weeks for 16 weeks. That just about covers the whole winter if you give it as a Christmas present. The Shiitake Mushroom Kit is available from Amazon for $29.99.
