Shitake mushroom log preparation

cutting osk logs for shitake mushroom inoculation

It's been just over 4 years since we last cut sycamore logs for shitake inoculation.

Some of those logs still produce mushrooms, but not many.

Today we cut off 2 sections of a large oak that fell during a recent storm. We're not ready to cut them up into logs, but it was necessary to cut them off from the main tree so they'll be ready in time to inoculate this Spring.
