I bought this mushroom garden for my sister’s family for Christmas. It seemed like a good idea because 1) the mushrooms are edible and can be used in cooking, and 2) I thought my nephews would get a kick out of growing fungus (they haven’t).
So sis follows the directions and the things aren’t growing. She’s just got a box of dirt and recycled coffee grounds sitting on her kitchen counter. We were about to give up… until I remembered my college days. Yes, it turns out all that expensive schooling actually did teach me something. Mushrooms will grow in your shower.
All those disgusting frat bathrooms and bachelor pads with fungus sprouting in the corner of the bathtub – it turns out my exposure to that lifestyle served a purpose. The mushroom garden has finally sprouted. Thanks, college.
