These photos were taken on the same exact day as these were! View from the side.

Growing Oyster Mushrooms: Day 2

Within one day, the mushrooms doubled in size.  It's growing so fast, that literally every hour that I walk passed the mushroom kit, it seems like it's just getting bigger and bigger.
Since this is my second time growing this type of kit, I realized that the key to successful mushroom growing is to keep the block of coffee grounds / spores completely moist.  So I mist it with water every 2-3 hours.  It loves the humidity, and lucky for me, New York City is sure humid in the summer. I can't wait to see what day 3 brings! Come back tomorrow to find out.

New Growth on my Back to the Roots Mushroom Kit

I started my second Back to the Roots mushroom kit yesterday. I got the kit months ago, but I've been so busy this summer that I never started it.  Then I noticed some spores starting to sprout, so I decided to start the kit immediately, by cutting the plastic open on the front and misting it with water.  Within one day, look what started growing! Baby oyster mushrooms! Get a load of this!! Mark my words, in a few days, these mushrooms are going to be ginormous!  Once they get started, they really grow so quickly.  I'll update the progress of the mushrooms when they get larger.

If you want to try out this neat kit, you can get 10% off right now.  But hurry, this discount ends the end of August 2012.  All you have to do is use this code "secretgardenblog10" for 10% off on their website Hurry, get your kit now!

Indoor Basil

I've been growing basil indoors this summer.  I just love it.  Being able to grab fresh basil everytime I am cooking is awesome.
Like the other night, I bought some fresh mozzarella and on the vine tomatoes and made some caprese sandwiches.  Ohhh, summer. You taste delicious!
