Growing Our Own Mushrooms

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Our shiitake logs started fruiting again.  We’ve got them in a sling that Brian designed hanging under a bradford pear tree.  They like the shade and being kept off of the ground.  I tried to get a little bit of time lapse photography by taking a photo a day.  They grow pretty fast.  I sold some at the farmer’s market and we also grilled a few with asparagus and garlic scapes last night.  Olive oil, salt and pepper.  To die for!

    That is pretty amazing!!! I’m not a mushroom fan, but that whole process is kind of intriguing to me! -and stop bragging about your garlic scapes!! 🙂

    Ha! The garlic scapes are finally all gone, but the leeks are starting to get them. I wonder if they’re tasty, too?
