Mushroom Delight

These logs are inoculated with Shitake Mushroom spores.  It took two years for it to start fruiting, but now, in it's fourth year, it's fourth summer, it's ready to explode with more mushrooms than ever.   Each mushroom is at least 5 inches in diameter, some larger.  Admittedly it's a strange sight - inoculated logs, but the flavor of mushrooms picked and sauteed in a pan five minutes later is absolutely delish!  I'll post photos of the mushrooms in the next few days ...

5 days later!
