For our flashbacks, I have some photos of Angel Phoebe on Cinco de Mayo. It was her favorite holiday. As many of you know, she had a cup on her pole and used to collect tips. On Cinco de Mayo her Grammie and her Dad each gave her $5.
And now to tell you about the logs with red spots that I showed you yesterday. My hubby and I are attempting to grow mushrooms, I purchased plugs that have the spores in them. You need to cute logs and let them sit for 2 weeks, then drill 20 holes in each log. You hammer the plugs into the holes and use cheese wax ( or beeswax) to coat them so no other organisms get in. You also have to coat the ends of the logs. In 6 months we should have Hen of the woods mushrooms. This is new to us, we have only grown the button mushroom kits indoors.
Be sure to come by tomorrow for our Star Wars giveaway for May the 4th.
