weird shrooms, originally uploaded by espeedy123.

Michael and I recently returned from a few days in Napa Valley. We took a break from debating whether there was more gooseberry or redcurrant in various wines to follow a farm trail. We encountered some odd people along the way.

This stop was at an exotic mushroom farmer. I learned you don’t need a lot of space to grow these. This little hut was about 8 by 12 feet. There’s the farmer on the right explaining to a really interested lady about those oyster shrooms.

This was right before he pulled out a mushroom brick from the back of the shroomhouse. He stuck it up in my face and said if I touched one I might get pregnant. That’s about the time we moved on to the next farm.
