Mini mushroom log experiment
Oyster mushrooms are easy to propagate on the home scale using cardboard,
so I spent quite a few years pushing oysters. But the truth is that,
while Mark thinks oyster mushrooms are good, he thinks shiitakes are
I call it an experiment, but the truth is that Tradd Cotter lists this as a viable technique in his book.
Granted, he uses logs that are much larger in diameter than the little
rounds I had Mark cut up and drill for me to plug Monday. But I'm hoping
that as long as I keep them moist, logs 8 inches long and 3.5 inches in
diameter will be sufficient for getting the shiitake mycelium running.
Eventually, we can stack multiple rounds together, allow the mycelium to
fuse, and thus have enough fungal body to produce a good mushroom
