Though this rain may drown out some of our other crops, the mushroom logs are performing splendidly. We sat down to a nice meal of sautéed shiitake mushrooms last night. Since we have just established some logs, they aren’t all in full production mode so its seems clear that there will be little external sales of these babies yet… they are just too good to let go!
We had the pleasure of attending a workshop at the home of the mycologist Paul Stamets a couple of years ago, and he got us excited about medicinal mushrooms. From that prompting, we’ve incubated some Turkey Tail mushrooms, which are now starting to flush. There is an interesting article on how the Turkey Tail mushroom can boost the immune system, it was used with great success to support breast cancer patients in a clinical trial.X
