Mushroom Logs

Another one of my domestic fantasies has been to grow my own food. This might be decidedly more difficult in New Mexico, as I want to be ecologically responsible and not use an insane amount of water. Part of me wonders if doing container gardening with a few select edibles would be a smarter choice.

One thing I think would be really cool is a mushroom log. You can grow them indoors and they are available here for a very reasonable price, are certified organic, and yield two to four crops of shiitake mushrooms. Very cool, huh?

Cool doesn't even do justice to this. Wowza!

Came back to tell you to take a peek at Karine Swenson's latest post. (link on my blog) She moved to the desert and has a really good description of how it felt to move to such a landscape.

How cool is that? It's great just for its sculptural effect, but fresh mushrooms, even better.
