Shitake mushrooms

A quick how to on Shitake:

Shitake spore in Beechwood dowels

Dowels are inserted into drill holes in Oak logs
Hot cheese wax covers the holes

Ready to be stacked 

Stacked logs rest under rainforest shade for 1 year until mushroom fruiting

and the lovely rainforest provides more than enough mulch for all our gardening needs

Mid winter gardening and tree mulching. We also put shitake mushroom spore into oak logs yesterday. In a years time hopefully fresh organic shitake mushrooms!!
