Innoculating Mushroom Logs
After visiting Bozena's farm, I headed over to another friend's farm. Derick had been wanting to innoculate his shiitake logs for a few days and luckily he had two sets of hands appear to help him do so. We spent a good 5 hours innoculating a dozen logs with 1200 plugs. Yes 1200.
We drilled holes in each log (top) and then pushed in the sawdust and mushroom spore plugs (middle).
This is the guy to see if you want mushroom everything: www.mycosource.com
After all that innoculating, I'm considering buying a pre-innoculated log from him at market (he sells just around the street from me). I do eat a lot of mushrooms...
