Mysterious mycelium



It looked outside to check on the old mushroom log chunks I dumped in a big terra cotta pot with some potting soil and wood shavings. Some of the chunks are still covered with the white mycelium matter. The big one, though, was all brown. I think this means it might be ready to fruit. I brought it in and am soaking it, recycling the container from some store-bought white buttons. Will ever get my $30 worth of shiitakes out of this damn log? Stay tuned.

Shitakes are delicious. I hope you get another flush! Keep us updated.

After two days I can already tell this is going to be a moldy piece of garbage.
