Even better than we hoped!
Pat from Moorestown from NJ wrote (November 07, 2011):
I bought these as a gift to my husband who has missed our vegetable garden since the first frost hit. We hoped to have enough mushrooms to eat a few nights a week. Within four days of activating the log we had gorgeous and delicious shitakes. Omelets, stews, and soups never tasted so good! These mushrooms are even delicious raw. It is also a savings since organic shitakes cost $12.95 a pound in the store. This kit more than pays for itself.
