Want to Grow: Shiitake Mushrooms

If you didn't know already, I have a fondness for growing things. I'm totally into the kitchen garden this year, with plans to do more canning than just my jellies. I can't can mushrooms - or maybe I can - but I'm pretty sure I could eat all of these mushrooms before they ever need to be canned. Check out this mushroom growing kit from Gaiam! It's rad! You just set it in a dish and add water - and viola - mushroom crops sprout up every week to two weeks for up to 16 weeks. Damn! They come in Oyster or Shiitake for the low low price of $39.00. I'm not sure what they go for per pound at the groc, but it seems like a good deal.
