my logs from this spring just fruited! I thought they were not going to give until next year.

Nice!

When I was taking a course with sepp holzer in Montana he taught us to smack the logs really hard with a stout stick (club) when they just start to fruit. The shock is supposed to somehow cause a vigorous flush of growth, but I didn't understand the explanation when Holzer's  translator told us why this happens.

Would you consider trying this log smacking method with one log and letting me know if it worked for you? My farm is in Central Texas, I haven't tried mushrooms yet.
