Shiitake Shrooms

Over the slow winter months, we decided it would be a great idea to start a small shiitake mushroom farm! We got supplies, found some perfect white oak, then gathered the women to what is now called "the mushroom house" -- Susan's house, that is. We had a ball! And with any luck, we'll be seeing our first mushrooms in the next few months. All in all, we've inoculated 35 logs so far.

Drilling holes for the shiitake spawn. First time using a power drill - oh yeah!

Plugging the holes using the inoculator tools.

All together now!

The women got the hang of it very quickly.
