Shiitake mushrooms!

So for those who have followed the blog you know that we inoculated oak logs from the trees we cut down with shiitake mushroom spore (see post from 2010/05/28. What a bumper crop this year! I have been encouraging them to flush by soaking them in lots of water. We inoculated some logs with chicken of the woods and maitake, but neither seems to have taken. The log pictured below is our prize winner. I counted 33 mushrooms on it!
