Mushroom Farm

May 09, 2010 by Adam in Adam's Projects

Joanna ordered mushroom spore laced dowels from the local farm cooperative.  Yesterday the kids and I got the dowels "planted."  First, Sam dug a trench behind the shed.  We lined it with plastic so that it would hold water, and set up the water spout to empty into it.  I drilled holes in logs and Sam and Emma pounded the dowels into the holes.  Finally we set up the logs in the trench.  With luck, mushrooms should appear in a few months, and the logs should last a few years.
