Mushroom Cultivation

i was definitely getting nervous man. this flush isn't going to be that great as i let the logs dry out, so they didn't colonize as well as I'd hoped. I'll be soaking them overnight this weekend in hopes that colonization will pick up, but my hopes are pretty minimal on that front.

On that note, I'd recommend soaking yours too. IIRC, resaturating the logs triggers fruiting in some cases, and should yield bigger fruit bodies. Don't take my word for it though, this is my first attempt with this style of cultivation.
Sounds about right on rehydrating. That's too cool, I'm going to have get in on some of this stuff. It would be awesome to be able to go out back and pick some mushrooms to go with dinner.

Based on your suggestion we put the logs in the baby pool to soak. No Pins...:( hopefully something comes in...if not...the virtue of patience i do possess....cant wait until spring!

Any more popping on your logs?

A few, I need to go back out there and check. since this weekend is supposed to be a four day weekend, i think i'll probably get them in a bath too. the year's harvest may not be the best unfortunately. might've botched this round. we'll see.
