Do you remember two of my previous posts, A Foray Into Fungi and Zilch, where I told you about a mushroom kit I'd bought in the pound shop? I'd done exactly as instructed on the box, yet not a single mushroom grew.
Not one to give up, I brought the container out of the dark and left it uncovered on the kitchen windowsill. This is what's popped up.
There's one decent sized mushroom and you might just be able to see another tiny one behind it. It certainly won't make a risotto, it won't even cover a slice of bread for mushrooms on toast, but at least I got a mushroom to grow.
The kit only cost £1 so I think I'll definitely give it another go if I see one again in the pound shop, it's not a huge outlay but it's fun trying to get something to grow.
