Shiitake Mushrooms Are Still Popping Out
Remember those mushroom blocks that I brought back from Far West Fungi back in mid-October? In early November, oyster and Shiitake mushrooms started growing out from the blocks. For the last two months, I have been picking mushrooms off those blocks. They usually start to pop out after a few days of rain. There had been weeks that I forgot to check them then I would find huge mushrooms. Most of time I pick them right before dinner. It would be so dark outside that I just didn't bother to take pictures. This morning, I went to check on the block before leaving for Cubicle World. A couple young Shiitake mushrooms are starting to grow. It will take about a week for them to reach mature size.
