How many of you like the idea of growing your own food? It feels like everywhere we look,  processed food is everywhere, not to mention the worry of what chemicals may have touched vegetables or herbs entering our bodies. While some of what the media talks about is nothing more than scare tactics, others may you step back and wonder if it is better to just grow some of your food at home.  Scares, real or imagined, aren’t the only concern –  add in the fact that herbs are often extremely expensive in stores. While I have always had a little plant area in our house, I have been toying with the ideas of growing my own herbs in the house, especially after having a lot of success with a small garden outside this past year. After doing a bit of research, I decided it was finally time to start our little garden. One company quickly caught our attention when it came to organic, easy gardens – Back to the Roots.

Back to the Roots: Mushroom Farm

Looking for an easy way to grow mushroom s that is great for kids and adults alike? If so, we think you will love the Back to the Roots Mushroom Farm.  What makes this kit so cool is that it allows you to grow organic oyster mushrooms from the box in just 10 days. All you have to do is open the box, mist with water, and wait to harvest the mushrooms 10 days later.  Not only do you get fun mushrooms, you also get heirloom tomato seeds to grow with the composted mushroom kit! Since this box can last for months, it is great to give as a gift for mushroom lovers to use anytime, or busy parents who want to help their children learn about growing food, but don’t have the time to start this project right away. These mushrooms and the included tomato seeds are USDA organic and non-GMO certified. Currently, you can buy the Mushroom Farm on the Back to the Roots website for only $19.99.

    As Desiree mentioned, this would be great in a classroom setting. I do miss my fresh herbs in the winter. My son’s rabbit would love having her own mint plant.

    This is neat, would be great to use these fresh herbs on a dish, while. Would be able to pick what I wanted while cooking.

    I want to do one of those mushroom farms so bad. They are so cool, and I love mushrooms. I probably would need a full mushroom village to supply my family.

    I truly love gardening. I have room on my kitchen windowsill for a herb garden. What an easy and cute way of accomplishing that!

    Would like to give these a try. Enjoy gardening.

    I like having fresh herbs. They taste better than dried and smell good. We grew mushrooms a few years ago. It was kind of a mess.

  24. Marsha C January 17, 2017 at 11:18 am - Reply

    I love these. I garden outside, but living in Wisconsin gives us a short growing season. I have to get some of these and start gardening indoors!

  25. Michelle S January 25, 2017 at 10:24 am - Reply

    These are both useful and pretty! We have an outdoor garden but the herbs would be fun to do in the house.

    I have been wanting to start my own herb garden, thank you for sharing.

    This is the sort of thing I’d gladly give as a gift to a kid or to anyone who wants to eat healthily or anyone who is new to growing their own food or to anyone who may have limited space for growing. Practical, valuable and easy. Good stuff.

    I love the idea of growing herbs indoor. I fear, however, that I would kill them. lol

  29. Cindy S. March 12, 2017 at 10:07 am - Reply

    These look so fun and easy too. I think my kids would love this. Thanks for sharing.

    I have never heard of these before. They look pretty easy to grow.

    We have our seeds planted and sprouting in the mudroom. Just waiting on the weather to warm up so we can get them planted.

    The only reason I don’t grow vegetables indoors is because gnats seem to come with the growth.

  34. Linda Szymoniak July 15, 2017 at 2:05 am - Reply

    I’ve been working on making what i cook healthier, and experimenting with many different recipes (I especially love trying dishes from various other countries). I really don’t think dried herbs do many of the dishes justice, and do buy fresh ones from the grocery at times. I’ve been wanting to start my own herb garden, and this looks like it would be a great way to do this. Also, what a great gift idea! I know others who would benefit from having fresh herbs readily available.

  35. Deb E August 28, 2017 at 12:20 am - Reply

    I love them both in a jar and can and I’d love to either give or get one of these as a gift. This would work well in a small apartment too.
