Shiitake mushroom grow kits.. worth the money?

prachi(6b (NJ))October 10, 2013

Do the Shiitake mushroom kits really have a good yield? i.e. if you buy a $20 kit will you get more than $20 worth of mushrooms. I can get a 4oz package of shiitake's for about $4. Even cheaper at the chinese grocery store.
