We love to know what happens to our Kitchen Garden mushroom kits when they fly our nest, and are really grateful to everyone who’s shared their photos and experiences of growing their kits with us.
Since Christmas we’ve received photos by email, twitter, Facebook and even Instagram which has been fantastic. As well as the photos, it’s been entertaining to see the commentary you’ve included!
Sometimes it’s been surprise at how fast the mushrooms have actually grown “One week in and growing away madly…” Andrew exclaimed about this kit, other people love their shape, Rachel was impressed by her mushrooms saying they were “beautiful“, and many of you have been showing off your culinary delights (and making us very jealous along the way with your home-made, home-grown mushroom pizzas and Tuscan bean stews)!
It’s clear that fair amount of mental energy also goes into nurturing your Kitchen Gardens – Genevieve was very concerned about what would happen to her mini-mushrooms when she went away for the weekend, but fortunately they were able to look after themselves and take over her kitchen while she was away!
We know the feeling Gen, we’re constantly trying to make sure the mushrooms have optimal conditions and still find it just as exciting when they start to pin and then double in size each day – amazing!
What to do with all these excellent photos and experiences?
We’ve started by updating the Your Mushrooms section of our website – have a gander here.
We’ve also created this Mushroom Montage that we’ve posted on Facebook.
To give something back, we’re doing a ‘competition’ and have a pack of each of our Seedbombs; the Hot Leaf Salad, Wild Flower Tea and Bumper Garden Veg to give away. To be in with a chance of winning, simply tag yourself (or a friend – although they’d win the prize too!) in your favourite mushroom photo on the montage – Robbie, Jon and I each have our favourite mushrooms on the montage and the person (or people) who match of favourite will win the prize!
Have a look at Your Mushroom Montage here – we’ll announce the winners over Easter, so get tagging!
In the meantime, here is Ryan’s Vine that we couldn’t include in the montage!
