This story contains an affiliate link to a book on Amazon. But just the one 🙂 and it’s about mushrooms.
Every morning, before cooking breakfast, I reliably discover Alex misting his mushroom colony. He gently unravels the translucent trash bag we use to cover the lumpy substrate because our little babies have clearly outgrown their original plastic tent.
He has a ritual by now. Alex begins misting around the edges and sides, moving towards the stems and finally finishes off by spraying the mushroom caps.
Oh, the mushroom caps.
They are springy blooms with a velvety head that’s surprisingly smooth to the touch.
