A mushroom company in North

A mushroom company in North Carolina is claiming to have successfully inoculated trees with black truffles. No one has ever been able to do this before. Black truffles can net you about $70,000 per acre, but they’ve never been able to be successfully farmed. They just happen, in a small area of France and Italy, if you’re lucky. If true, this could eventually make truffles available for the masses!

My parents (and youngest sister) drove into town this morning, staying for one day only. They’ll have spent more time on the road driving here and back from outside St. Louis, Missouri, than they’ll spend here visiting, but I’m glad they came. They’ll see the play tonight and head off after lunch tomorrow.
