#homegrown #shiitakemushroom sauteed in olive oil with a little salt and a splash of balsamic vinegar. Needed a pinch of sugar which I'll remember for next time. 26 Oct 2022 #shiitake #mushroom #fungi #gyo-mushrooms #imadethis #eatwhatyougrow
I probably picked this guy a few hours too early, but I knew there's no way I'd remember to go back out and get it. Such a #cute little button. 26 Oct 2022 #shiitake #mushroom #fungi #shiitakemushroom #gyo-mushrooms #fungusamongus
The white stuff on the end of the log is #shiitake #mycelium that has slowly made its way through the log. This is a GREAT sign and means I just might have several years of mushroom harvests. 27 Sep 2022 #shiitakemushroom #fungi #fungusamongus
Right after discovering the winecaps Hubby suggested that we look at the #shiitakemushroom #logs we inoculated last fall. I was all "I gave up on those" and he's like "let's just look anyway" and surpriiiiiiiise! 🍄🍄🍄🍄 27 Sep 2022
@lesliecole49 I bought some wooden dowel plugs that already had the shiitake mycelium on them (www.fieldforest.net) and then drilled holes in the logs and hammered in the plugs. There's a beginner's kit that has everything you need, but you have to get your own logs.
Finally finished plugging my last #shiitake #log and stapled on the aluminum tag. I also forgot that I needed to water the logs quite a bit after inoculating, so I dunked them back in the water overnight. Hope that wasn't too much water. Guess we'll see. #experiment #wood 24 Oct 2021
Stacked my #shiitake #mushroom #logs in a log-cabin stack, which is on top of some big bluestone slabs that we removed from our back yard a few months ago. Looks like a tomb....🤣 👻☠💀🦇🕸🕷⚰🍬🍫🍭🍊 16 Oct 2021 #experiment #ediblelandscaping #permaculture #spooky #halloween
I love this 💕 I've been watching YouTube videos for 2 hours. This is happening soon at my house. Our son's went up into deep forests yesterday and brought home a lot of chanterelles. Last year I dried some, very good. Did you order plugs?
@columbiariver I ordered the small kit from www.fieldforest.net and yes it was plug spawn. It came with the drill bit and wax and was really easy. Would definitely recommend. Hardest part for me was coming up with the oak logs.
All done! Smeared the wax over the end of the dowel to seal in the moisture. The wax was the consistency of lip balm and was simple to use. This is my first try at growing mushrooms and so far the hardest part was coming up with the oak logs. 11 Oct 2021 #experiment #ediblelandscaping #permaculture #mushroom #shiitake
Step 4: hammer these dowel plugs into the drilled holes and seal the holes with wax. The dowels were really easy to hammer in. They fit perfectly and went in easily with 5 or 6 light taps. 11 Oct 2021 #experiment #ediblelandscaping #permaculture #mushroomspawn #shiitake
Step 3: hammer the small dowels that have the mushroom spawn into the holes in the logs. The #kit came with everything I needed: the drill bit, a collar to limit the depth of the holes, wax that I can just scoop out with my finger (no need to melt it!) to cover up the dowels and seal in the moisture. Hammer & logs not included. 11 Oct 2021
Step 2 of #shiitake growing: My hubby, my hero 😍 he's drilling inch deep holes in my #oak #logs so I can stuff in the #mushroom spawn. No sawhorse, no problem! 11 Oct 2021 #experiment #ediblelandscaping #permaculture #improvise
