Shitake Mushroom Logs!

We started another batch of mushroom logs today.

It all starts with inoculated sawdust.

Then you drill holes in the logs. The holes were drilled every three inches, all around the logs; about 1/2 an inch deep.

After that, you fill the holes with the inoculated sawdust.

And cover the holes with a wax.

Set the logs up in a shaded area and then you will have tons of mushrooms in about one year! It's worth the wait.
Here are some mushrooms from the logs that were inoculated this time last year.

These mushrooms are a little dry because they aren't getting enough shade. It got warm very early this year before the trees had created foliage.

See ya later!
