Fungus Garden Success

I recently posted a few photos showing the start of a fungus garden my two daughters and I made.  We took a large canning jar and dropped in several food items.  We dropped in bread, cheese, lunch meat, and a Girl Scout cookie.

We then checked each day to see if anything was growing on the food items.  It took 7 days, but finally some mold started to grow on the lunch meat.  Then it spread to the cheese and eventually to the bread at the 10-12 day mark.

Mmmm...yummy!  LOL!  Yep, a successful fungus garden!  Try one out with your kids and see how quickly mold grows on different food items.  Nothing was growing on our cookie after 10 days, but the cookie did break up into several pieces as the days went by.
