Blog Update!
For those of you not following me on Facebook, as of the Summer of 2019 I've moved to Central WA, to a tiny mountain town of less than 1,000 people.

I will be covering my exploits here in the Cascades, as I try to further reduce my impact on the environment. With the same attitude, just at a higher altitude!

Christmas Shroom Growing Challenge!

Since we're already under several inches of snow, with more to come this week, fall/winter gardening is pretty much not happening, even for the kind of crops I used to grow in Seattle.

I've been thinking of growing mushrooms again, and the 15% off sale today from Territorial Seeds is giving me a kick in the pants to do it. Shiitake mushrooms are about $25/lb in our area (especially for organic ones) so I usually don't splurge on them and get crimini instead, which I really love. But shiitake just has a really great flavor and texture!

Anyone want to join in on a Christmas Shroom Growing Challenge? I'll be posting my shroomin' progress and harvest weigh ins. I want to see how other people have success with all the varietals out there, so feel free to get something besides shiitake! I'll probably order two kits and, if there's surplus, I'll put them in the dehydrator and save them for when the kits run their course.

Use the code TSC10 to get an additional 10% off! (No affiliations)
