Mushroom Garden Contest Winner and 20% Off Mushroom Kit

Posted on Jan 31 2011 - 3:21am by Mike Lieberman

I’d like to thank everyone who entered the contest to win their own mushroom garden kit courtesy of Back to the Roots Ventures.

There were a total of 128 comments and entries. There was a comment that slipped in past the deadline and wasn’t counted.

To choose the random winner, I went to and entered 1-128 in the true random number generator.

The number generated was 57. The comments were ordered from newest to oldest and counted down.

The winning comment was left by Joy who’s comment was:

My Favorite mushroom recipe is a Portabelo Cap with homemade tomato sauce. And Fresh Motzarella Cheese.. Like a pizza :))
