Shiitake Time!

From Mushrooms

These pictures are about 2 weeks old – the mushrooms have tripled in size, were picked and carefully rinsed free from insects, and are residing in my fridge. These are the West Wind strain from Field & Forest – my very first to fruit outdoors ever!

And as of 10 minutes ago it is officially King Stropharia Time!

These are also the first ever to fruit, from the beds I planted 13 months ago. Notice the lovely vigorous mycelium at the base of the stem – this actively-growing matter would have enough energy to begin colonizing some fresh substrate, if I picked it carefully.
