...since updating on the status of Enrico. So long in fact that we have much exciting news to tell you about. Enrico has two brothers now. Sammy Davis Jr Jr (after the seeing-eye bitch in the movie "Everything is Illuminated" - AND as of a couple days ago, dear little "Ludwig" joined the family.
I made a decision some time ago that I would let Enrico live his days out in the mushroom playpen for two pseudo-scientific reasons: 1) What do the stages of a portobello's full life span look like? and 2) Maybe if allowed to live his full life-cycle perhaps he would drop some spores and we would get a little more "action" in the box... who knows?
Observation #1 two days ago Enrico's sides curled up in a mighty mushroom display. I'm thinking he's ready to do some "sporage".
I was asked yesterday how come all my 'shrooms have boys names- is it a Freudian thing? Do i think all men are in the dark, with damp feet and mold all around them? Perhaps, but without a qualified professional to make the call, I have to say their names are just names, that is all! :)
