In so many ways, this has been the year of the mushroom for us. We successfully began growing our own mushrooms this year, and then it rained, and rained, and rained all summer. Not so great for the garden, but amazing for mushroom hunting and harvesting.
If you have a mushroom lover on your list, here are some great ideas for gift giving.
Mushroom Growing Kits
Spray and Grow Kits from North Spore couldn’t be easier. I used a kit to grow amazingly delicious Lion’s Mane mushrooms and got 5 flushes from one kit.
