Mushroom Logs

If you bought a log last year it's time to reap the rewards!  If you have lost your brochure, here's a quick run down:

Soak the log for 24 hours (rain/well/spring water)

Sit the log upright to aid in fruiting.  Check daily for mushrooms.  They can be eaten at any stage, but let them get 4" across or so.  Pluck off the log, Remember to toss the stem on your compost pile as it is too woody to eat. You can toss it in with a soup or broth and then discard if you like.

Harvest for 2 week or so and then let the logs rest for 2 to 4 weeks and repeat.  Yummy!

We will be inoculating some Tree Oyster (Pleurotus ostreatus) next week. You can pick one up here at the farm, Charlotte Farmers Market Friday & Saturday, or at the Asheville Herb Fest April 30 - May 2.
