I’m not sure what that question actually meant, considering the young man who asked it was standing right in front of a blueberry bush. However, it reminded me how important it is for kids (and adults) to see where fruits and vegetables are grown, how they grow and all the time and labor that goes into harvesting them.

Blueberries don’t just wind up in clamshells in the grocery store all by themselves, after all. They’re only there because growers, fieldworkers, shippers and who knows how many other people took the time and care to get them from the plant to the produce aisle.

We are delighted to see the Forest Nameko mushroom getting a boost from an unlikely source - a video game! At Gourmet Mushrooms we've been playing the mushroom farm game for over 35 years. No sound effects, but plenty of excitement. Forest Nameko is just one of eight varieties of specialty mushrooms that we grow. The beautiful amber color of this mushroom brightens any dish. The glossy cap is a natural protein gel which adds silkiness to risotto and a light body to soups. The Forest Nameko are sold primarily to chefs, but are available in some areas of the country in our MYCOPIA retail packs. www.mycopia.com
