Greetings, Linda and Amanda, and Connie, good luck with your plants (I have a brown-thumb, and can't keep even plastic plants in good condition!)
I have offered shiitakes, and they're well received - but will be honest, and admit that for the cost and immediate availability, I tend to stick to the white button and the portabellos.
Last night, I again went out on the loft balcony, and collected 3 moths (looper moths, this time) for the boys. Now, they're already getting excited, when they hear the balcony door open, in their eagerness for the treat.
Autumn is here, I think - but still, it looks like we might just get an extended 'Indian' summer - hope so, anyway!
