Rated 5 out of 5 by from We have mushrooms! I'm not someone who likes to take care of things, so I wasn't super excited when I received a mushroom log as a gift. I've tried growing flowers and herbs before, and it has never worked, so I don't do plants. Lucky for me, mushrooms aren't plants. I've made almost zero effort, and I have a thriving mushroom garden! I soaked the log, put it in the back yard, and forgot about it for a few months. When I checked it again, it looked like something was starting to happen. Not long after that, mushrooms were sprouting all over the log. And the shiitakes are delicious! It could be my imagination, but they taste better than any mushrooms I’ve bought at a grocery store.

Continued as per the instructions, waited some more. About two years later, two mushrooms grew. Then that was it. 3.5 years later chucked it in the garden waste. $12.50 per mushroom is not a good deal.
