Hello friends. Just wanted to pass along some good fortune on the mushroom front. I inoculated thirty logs back in April with shiitake sawdust, and had some sawdust leftover. I kept it in the fridge since and it was starting to look rough. I decided to put the remaining mycelium into some stumps I had recently cut. I then covered the stumps with cellophane and a couple dark grocery bags for darkness. The attached picture was taken today, three weeks after inoculation.

Beautiful Scott! Will the other logs be fruiting this year?

Thanks Corey. The other logs haven't fruited at all. That's why I'm so happy with what I'm seeing here. Hopefully in the spring they'll start production.
