Kept in the dark and covered with ....?

Something a bit different. I was given a pearl oyster mushroom kit and decided to make a photojournal of what happened.

For the first 7 days nothing happened at all. The following pictures were all taken 24 hours apart over the following 6 days.

 At last - something stirs
Same day but a close up shot - from nothing to this in 24 hours

Getting bigger
and bigger
Growing apace now

Almost ready for harvesting. The gills are well developed and the caps are flattening out.

Ready to cut. This is the last picture as 10 minutes later they were chopped up and in the pan ready to become part of a mushroom risotto.

And very nice it was too!
