Easy Foods to Grow Without a Garden
Want your own crop of specialty mushrooms? Try an easy-to-use mushroom kit, which lets you grow mushrooms in a nicely contained indoor box. Fungi Perfecti offers hard-to-find varieties, such as Lion’s Mane and Nameko (Fungi Perfecti, fungi.com, $25), and Back to the Roots (backtotheroots.com, $19.95) uses recycled coffee grounds as soil and donates to urban gardens. Just open the box, place on a windowsill and mist the recycled coffee ground “soil.” Kits yield up to two pounds, with the first crop ready for harvest in 10 days.
