Our Back to the Roots kit for growing oyster mushrooms in coffee grounds is working! Take a look.

Check out the tiny pinheads on the right. They should be big in just a few days.

I’ve brought this project home to grow with my twin sons, and now that we have some action, they’ve got a lot to say.

“When will they be ready?” (Good question. I guess when we decide they are.)

“Do we get to eat them?” (Take note, parents. This is the first time my kids have ever expressed interest in eating mushrooms.)

“I think the box should be on its side.” (Sure. Let’s see what happens.)

“Let’s try them on pizza.” (You got it.)

    After Day 8 I was skeptical about it, but then it started to sprout all alien like.

    Have you turned yours around yet?
