First shiitakes of the year

It’s been a bad year for mushrooms — at least, the kind we’re trying to grow.  The kind that spring up, unbidden, all over our property seem to be doing just fine.

Kevin took matters into his own hands and soaked the logs for three days in the pond.  Then, a mere three days later, we had about 150 mushrooms sprouting from our logs.  This was our first of what will be several harvests.
