What types of edible mushrooms can be grown on cherry logs?  Where is a good place to get plugs?

Nameko (Pholiota nameko), is a very flavorful mushroom popular in Japan. Although I've never grown this species, I've read that it does well on cherry logs. Field and Forest Products (fieldforest.net) has spawn for this species, along with info on how to grow it on logs. I'd guess that Oyster Mushrooms would grow on cherry logs as well. Good luck!

Turkey tails can grow on cherry too, often not on purpose. Mostly medicinal rather than food, but one of the best medicinals.
