reasons to love this kit, aside from those already mentioned above:
1. it's mess free. no need to touch dirt, which works out for a priss like me.
2. once they started growing, they were doubling in size daily. i ran to the windowsill every day to check on their progress in the morning and after work. extremely exciting.
3. the mushrooms are clean. i didn't need to brush soil off of them, or examine the gills for insects.
after harvesting them, i simply sauteed them on a pan and sprinkled truffle salt on one half, and green tea salt on the other.
they tasted fantastic.
i'm currently nurturing my second batch. fingers crossed that they'll grow.
on a completely unrelated note, happy thanksgiving (or just a happy thursday for all you non-americans)!
