Shiitake Mushroom Logs for Sale!!!

Shiitake Mushroom Logs!!!

Logs are fresh-cut oak, 3-5 inches in diameter and 30-48 inches long.  They have been thoroughly inoculated with Shiitake mushroom spawn, and will begin to produce high-quality, organic mushrooms by fall of 2013.  The logs will produce heavily for about 2-3 years, and will decline after that, though they will continue to produce some for several years.  After production declines, the logs can be used as firewood, borders for garden paths (that will occasionally produce mushrooms!), or shredded into organic soil-building mulch.  Log-grown Shiitakes are vastly superior in quality to commercial sawdust-grown mushrooms – while sawdust-grown Shiitakes sell for about $4/lb, log-grown Shiitakes sell for up to $40/lb.

These logs are incredibly easy – just stick the logs in a shady spot in your yard and let them sit.  Once you notice mushrooms beginning to fruit, you can either leave them alone and harvest a few mushrooms here and there, or you can soak them in water for 24 hours (in, say, a garden pond or kiddie pool) to stimulate heavy production.  This is a very easy and very low-effort way to get quality mushrooms in your own yard!

Prices are $50 for logs between 24-36 inches in length, $75 for logs between 36-48 inches in length.  Free delivery within 20 miles of zip code 22207.  To purchase, or for more information, please call 571-282-1724 or email info@oegardens.com.

I am very envious – we treetad ourselves to one of these and we didn’t get a single mushroom from it. I think it ended up being dumped in the compost or the chiminia. Anyway, musn’t grumble we have plenty of other things to eat from our garden and allotment. Happy eating.
