I've been coveting a mushroom log for years, but it sounded so complicated. A watering/not watering schedule. An even temperature of 60 degrees or something, impossible where I live. But when Mushroom Guy appeared at the farmers' market with birch logs innoculated with mushroom spores, I was a goner!
Then the log just sat there in the garden for a year, and I gave up hope. There was $12 ill-spent....
Imagine my glee when the snow left after our terrible, cold winter, spring arrived . . .
and I noticed the log was sprouting mushrooms!
Even at $4 each, these tasted lovely.
They aren't much less expensive at Mushroom Guy's market stand.
