Last spring we started the ‘mushroom logs’ if you don’t remember, check out this post http://www.simplylovinghome.blogspot.com/2012/04/adventures-of-mushroom-farming-begins.html We had lots of fun and ended up with 213 logs of mushroom spores!! Some of the logs won’t produce because we made some wrong choices in the type of wood to use, but for the most part… they are producing!!
Pete is trying to figure out if soaking the logs in cold water for 12 hours, 24 hours or more makes any difference in the overall production…. so far, I have no idea! 🙂 Like I said, we are still on the learning curve! (The picture above is courtesy of Austin!)
Lots of tasty results for the freezer!! I’ll be trying my hand at dehydrating some of them and discovering new ways to use them! Did you know… Shiitake mushrooms are VERY good for you? They are loaded with protein… and when cooked they release MORE of their healthy qualities then when eaten raw!!
