Growing mushrooms

Squash and an eggplant
I discovered mushroom kits at Maker Fair this spring and finally purchased my own last week at the farmer's market. It was $20 and came with it's own stand.
We haven't harvested any yet, waiting for the sprouts to get a little bigger.
My goal with growing a garden is to produce everything I usually put in stir fry. Except for the chicken, I'm well on my way. Today we had stir fried eggplant and squash directly from the garden.
I've also had great success baking bread with a new book I bought, which I'll save for another blog post.
