Future Mushrooms

I’ve decided to try my hand at growing mushrooms. I don’t care for them, but I do like gardening challenges. This oak, a fine specimen save for the fact that it was too close to the house, will hopefully provide the ideal…what? Host? Substrate? Anyhow, I dropped it and cut it into 4′ lengths, and stacked the logs for a curing period of two or three weeks…


…per the instructions that came with the the plug spawn.


I’ve got reishi, maitake, shitake in the fridge, and lion’s mane and pearl oyster on the way.
