As you may or may not know, I moved to Brookhaven a couple of months ago and I’m pretty much obsessed with my new neighborhood. It. Is. Love.
Reason #20958206 why I love Broohaven: the newly-invigorated Brookhaven Farmers’ Market (Saturdays from 9am – 1pm in the Haven parking lot: 1441 Dresden Drive, Atlanta, GA 30319)
Last Saturday got there a little late – so I’ll have to go get the full experience another time, but even though everyone was packing it up as we arrived… DK+DK managed to score gold:
Mushrooms on a Log: everything you need to grow your own shiitake mushrooms on a log brought to you by 2 Fun Guys.(Props for the awesome name, dudes.)
Yup. Just a log. Inoculated with a strain of shiitake mushrooms. Ready for you to take home, care for, and harvest yourself.
Check out owners Todd Pittard and Howard Berk on their website HERE. They’ll tell you how to care for them, even walk you through your harvest and give you suggestions on how to cook ‘em! I couldn’t dig this idea any more.
Dad walked off very happy with his log o’ shrooms.
