Multiplying Mushrooms

I am just writing to keep you updated on our mushroom project on the farm. The mushroom bags have already started producing mushrooms. We sent  8 kgs of  phoenix mushrooms to the cafeteria last week. The mushroom house is packed full of mushroom bags. The farmers watch to notice changes at the neck of the bag which indicates the mushroom spores have started to develop. When they see a change, they remove the newspaper that is sealing the bag and within a few days the mushrooms are spilling out. They love a warm, damp environment so the farmers keep the whole room dark and moist. I hope you enjoy eating them!
