Mushroom Farming, originally uploaded by benaston.

I’d just about given up on these buds of fungal goodness when, to my surprise, I discovered that my first foray into the world of shrooms had (in my absence) been a success.

I harvested four 3cm beauties from the first flush – apparently this encourages the second to come through. However, I’m not entirely sure that I’m going to grow enough to cover the £5.98 investment from B&Q – that’s going to take another 6lbs of these late bloomers to appear.

I think this makes me a horticulturalist. Bonus.
