Trendspotting: Grow-Your-Own-Fungus Kits

Would You Ever Grow Your Own Mushrooms?

Sales of mushroom-cultivation kits have bloomed in the past few years, thanks to a growing interest in exotic mushrooms, the wild foraging frenzy, and a national movement toward home gardening. Although fanatics make the case that home growing is fun, interesting, easy, and inexpensive, I just can't get behind the idea of inviting (really, fostering) fungus in my home. Can you?

I can't believe yes is winning. Just looking at that picture gives me the heebie-jeebies! People say they shudder when the see live animals getting slaughtered...I shudder when I find out where my fungus comes from! :true:

I hate mushrooms, so no.

I think it's incredibly disgusting, so I'm not going to grow it OR eat it ;)

I got a catalog about them last year and yes, I probably will try it this year. I'm trying to get the space in my garage from my hubby; that's a feat all in itself, that's his territory since I have the rest of the house. :)

At the Peet's at my local Whole Foods, they sell these weird mushroom kits. Every time I'm waiting for my cappuccino, I get a little grossed out looking at them.
