Is it Mushroom season yet?

January 31, 2011 1 comment



I inoculated some Red and White Oak logs with shiitake and Oyster Mushroom spawn last September, it’s been 5 months now. We’ve been anxiously waiting for the typical 6-12 month spawn run time for the logs to be “ready”. 5 months… maybe that’s close enough.

I read that over at Ozark Forest Mushrooms (and other places) they thump or drop the mushroom logs to stress them, then soak them to really stress them out. Well. the weather has been warm around 60-70, and tomorrow it is supposed to get cold, and rain heavily. So I went out and gave a couple oyster and shiitake logs a good whack and a drop to the ground.  Maybe I’ll get some mushrooms… if nothing in about a week, I’m soaking them to see if I can get something.
