Growing Mushrooms

I'm generally too lazy for any kind of gardening or yard work, but we got this shiitake mushrooms kit for Christmas and since I'm the only one who enjoys eating mushrooms, I knew I had to be the one to put the kit into action.

The process was fairly simple--drill holes in logs, place inoculated plugs into holes, cover with melted wax. The drill bit, wax, and wax dauber all came with the kit. All we needed was the logs, which C had conveniently cut the previous week, a drill, and something in which to melt the wax.

I don't have any pictures of the process because C was making a movie so I had to do all the work, but here is the finished product: our mushroom logs. Now we just have to wait a few months, and then--feast!


  1. Oh how I wish I enjoyed mushrooms. Have fun and enjoy!

  2. What fun! I was given some of those a few years ago but I never got round to doing anything with them, wonder if they would still work?

    1. Worth giving it a try, I suppose!
