Grow your own mushrooms.

This was a christmas present from my sister-in-law, Laurie.
4 pounds of mushrooms in a box of spores and coffee grounds.
I thought I would give it a try this week.
Mushrooms in a box.
How bizarre.

The directions were too simple.
Open side of box.
Cut a "+" into plastic.
Mist 2x a day.
That's it. How big should the + be? Should I mist the plastic?
 But, right as I was going to give up on nature, a little (not so cute) growth appeared
 and tiny baby oyster mushrooms started to grow.

This is not as miraculous as watching my own baby grow, but it's pretty cool.
