It’s Friday so I’m giving away mushrooms, naturally! #duh
Actually, in all seriousness, this is super cool, guys. Back to the Roots is a company founded by two guys in Oakland, California. Their short story goes like this: two dudes graduate from UC Berkeley, flip their noses at the corporate world and instead decide to grow mushrooms in coffee grounds. Sounds kind of crazy…errr…awesome, right? Well, I think so. Who doesn’t drink coffee? Who doesn’t love mushrooms? No one, that’s who! And growing food off of waste? Pretty incredible stuff.
Here’s the deal: this kit here allows you to grow oyster mushrooms in about 10 days (in soil that’s 100% coffee grounds from Peet’s!). All you do is place it on your windowsill, mist (mister included in kit) it once a day and ten days later…boom! Mushrooms. Genius. Cute. Moldy. All words to describe this super smart idea. Get on it!
Leave a comment telling me what summer dishes you’re digging so far (I need some inspiration). I’ll randomly (using my trusty random calculator) pick a winner on Sunday at midnight (EST).
