This giveaway is now CLOSED + the winner was selected using random.org. Congratulations to commenter #24, Adri – I’ll email you with details!
I’d like to introduce y’all to one of the coolest things I’ve seen – the Grow-Your-Own-Mushroom Kit made by Back To The Roots. It’s a nifty little box, filled with 100% recycled dry plant material (saw dusk, corn cobs, soy husks, wheat bran) and oyster mushroom seed. To grow your own mushrooms, you simply open it up, mist it twice daily (the mister is included), and in as few as 10 days, you’ve got organic, gourmet pearl oyster mushrooms, ready to harvest and eat! How cool is that?
I was lucky enough to try out a Mushroom Kit after winning one over on the blog Zest and Zeal. I was skeptical at first, as I don’t have the greenest thumb ever. But I followed the simple instructions, and sure enough, after a couple days, the mushrooms were already sprouting (see pics below). I harvested mine after about 12 days and they were SO perfectly delicious! Back To The Roots guarantees at least 2 harvests from each Grow-Your-Own-Mushroom Kit. Plus, when you post a picture of your fruiting Mushroom Kit to their Facebook page, they’ll donate a Mushroom Kit to the elementary school of your choice. How cool is that?
When I reached out to Back To The Roots to tell them how darn cool I thought their Mushroom Kit was, they graciously offered to donate a free Mushroom Kit to one of my readers.
