Crazier things have made it, even made it big, in the American marketplace, but fungal furniture - furniture made from mushroom roots - may be a little too "out there" for most people. Yet "out there" - in the marketplace - is where Brian McClellan, 23, and Merjan Tara Sisman, 21, aspire to be with the mushroom chair and pendant lights they created for their senior project at Philadelphia University this year. "I hate mushrooms, sadly. The texture is too funky. But I love their growing capabilities," says McClellan, who graduated in May and is working part time as a bartender while he refines the design of his pendants.

HERE'S a step-by-step guide to growing your own mushrooms. 1. Purchase spawn in sawdust or ready-to-go plugs. If using the sawdust kind, you need a little tool called an inoculator, which costs about $35. If using plugs, just whack them into drilled holes with a hammer. 2. Use freshly felled oak logs about 6 inches in diameter. Cut in lengths 36 to 40 inches long. Using a 5/16 drill bit, with a stop, cut evenly spaced holes along the log in a diamond pattern, 5 to 6 inches apart.

Researchers at the Pennsylvania State University are experimenting with a refrigeration system to extend the shelf life of fresh mushrooms and give a boost to grocers and growers. Storing mushrooms at temperatures between 32 and 38 degrees could extend mushroom shelf life by as much as five days, says Robert B. Beelman, a food- science professor at Penn State. Beelman said he would test the effectiveness of an open-faced refrigeration case, called a Pinnacle Upright Merchandiser, in maintaining the low temperatures needed to slow mushroom decay.

Melissa Maddonni Haims knits or crochets while she's walking, talking, dining out, or watching TV. She does it during meetings and even - shhhh - when she's in a car. Driving. "You can get six stitches on at a red light," she says, "three at a stop sign. " Stitch by obsessive stitch, this is how she created "The Foragers," a new yarn-bombing exhibit at the Schuylkill Center for Environmental Education in upper Roxborough, which runs through the end of March, and "Wrapped Up," a similar yarn fest at Morris Arboretum in Chestnut Hill that runs from March 26 to October - or until it disintegrates, whichever happens first.

One in a continuing series spotlighting real estate markets in the region's communities. On one January Sunday, Kennett Square basked in bright sunshine and, according to the National Weather Service, a record-setting 65 degrees. It was a picture-perfect day for a visit to what is still considered "the Mushroom Capital of the World," even though there has been a lot of industry consolidation in recent years. Nursing- and rehabilitation-center giant Genesis HealthCare, with $4.4 billion in annual revenue and 90,000 employees, made 101 E. State St. its corporate headquarters in the late 1990s and has contributed to Kennett Square's growth and prosperity since.
