Mushroom Logs!!!!!

We had a great workshop with Adam Leblanc making mushroom logs!

We adventured out into the land of the South Shore to pick up some freshly cut hardwood logs. The were to be soaked overnight so that the plugs would not dry out (thanks Nova Scotia weather….).

First we drilled holes in the logs to put in the plugs. Adam brought us a coup

le of bags of inoculated plugs we hammered in with bricks. We put a layer of wax over the plugs, and now they are waiting in the shade over the winter so that the logs can become completely colonized. In the spring, they are supposed to produce mushrooms every couple of weeks, after which you dunk them in water to start the process over again.

Thanks Adam!!!!
