Okay so it's probably a totally random coincidence and definitely not systematic sexism but I got a letter from the NHS addressed to both me and my brother and even though I'm Dr (clearly superior) and alphabetically first, it's still "Mr and Dr Guy".

Edit: Handed the letter to Dave when he got home from work and the first thing he said was "with your impressive title and the fact you did all the work for this, but my name is first? Wtf sexism." So he's raised right.

Oyster mushrooms! Elm, and blue/grey. First pins appeared on the 18th, and they matured and started dropping spores on the 25th. A fast turnaround! Every time I went in the kitchen they had grown some more. I felt like I could see them growing before my eyes.

They are the most beautiful things I have ever had a hand in creating.

I used kits from urban-farm-it.
