Mushrom Log Cultivation

so a month ago my friend Alex and i got together and hammered some innoculated plug spawn into some oak limbs that I had picked up from Blake Garden. she had oyster, shitake, and reishi mushrooms, and we inoculated about four lengths of oak with each variety by drilling holes (up to 50/log) and then gently pounding in the myceliated dowels.

we melted some wax and sealed the holes and then divided the spoils. i've been watering them every week or so and they're in a very shady part of the yard. in 7-9mos I'll take the logs and soak them for a few days in a tub of water, initiating a flush. hopefully. so check back in 9mos.

maybe this?
