That's where I've been. Out in the work shop creating my magic :) ... filling orders.
While my magic is going on inside ... remember the mushroom project going on outside that we started this spring?
We inoculated seven totem poles of oyster mushrooms. Well.... it's time to remove the plastic and start watching for the harvest.
Look at all that beautiful mycelium on those logs! That white, fuzzy growth is the beginning of the mushrooms. Soon they will begin pinning ... making the little mushrooms.
The 3 on the left ... the PoHu Oyster mushrooms will be the first to fruit. The Blue Dolphin Oysters on the right should set fruit when the temps drop to just above freezing. (In my neck of the woods... that won't be long) They should get a lot more white mycelium showing up on them as the weeks go by. So far ... so good :)
Although this is our first year growing them ... I'm thinking our mushroom project is right on schedule. I just pray the bear doesn't take a liking to them and cause us trouble ... so far ... knock on wood ... we've been spared having to find out.
Until next time ...
So it goes in my neck of the woods.
