As part of our urban homestead we are growing edible mushrooms on some of the logs that came from our land. Last Saturday Keja and Sarah came to help. (Hannah wasn’t able to help on account of the Winchester Elementary School talent show she was helping to direct.) We purchased innoculant for shitake, maitake, oyster, and lion’s mane from Fungi Perfecti. Oak is one of the best types of wood for the job, which we had plenty of from the land. The process involves drilling holes in the log, inserting the innoculant, which is in the form of dowels or sawdust with mycellium growing on it, and sealing the holes and ends of the log with wax.
