The box of mushrooms exploded in the last week. As the growth expanded each day, the box was fascinating to watch. The growing mushrooms are almost grotesque to observe and the pace they grew each day was remarkable. For example, here is a picture of how the box looked on Sunday morning.
By this morning, things had nearly doubled in size.
This weekend, we’ll have a supper of risotto with oyster mushrooms. Meanwhile, the amaryllis proceeds at a comparatively stately pace, soaking in the morning sunlight and preparing to issue forth a lovely bloom.
Our Winter has yet to be snowy but the cold has mostly settled in to stay. These blooms help me to pass the chilly days in good spirits. That’s happy!
