The "Ends & Pieces and FUNky Cuts" Collection of Mushroom Logs
Our natural wild Red Alder (hardwood) logs (Alnus rubra) are carefully selected and sustainably-harvested by hand from our private, old growth forest on the southwest slope of Mt. Rainier in Washington State. We harvest the trees at the peAk of their health and vigor, during their dormant season when they are plump from the mountain rains, and bursting with the energy of our mineral-rich volcanic soil...always exciting!
We process and inoculate our largest log lengths with carefully-selected strains of gourmet, edible mushrooms, including Oyster, Shiitake, Chicken of the Woods, Lion's Mane, or Reishi, using locally sourced Pacific Northwest organic mushroom spawn, and populate our 'shroomery's log "laying yards" in the dark, cool forest.... VERY exciting!
THIS unique and exclusive online collection of mushroom logs are the odd sizes, the funky cuts, and "too smalls" and "too shorts" the "too gorgeously curved," the beautifully knotted, bits, etc., and are WAY too wonderful for firewood....so we rolled up our sleeves, gathered up our tools, and inoculated them all...actually we OVER inoculated them so they will start fruiting sooner for you. We are thrilled to help spread the enthusiasm and knowledge about the ancient art of growing gourmet edible mushrooms on REAL logs....the old school way. high touch, low tech, slow food for your future.
"FUNky Cuts and Odds and EnDs"
We've classed these gorgeously-prepared mushroom logs into four basic sizes (all sizes are approximate because each log is distinct!) ...small, medium, long, and totem,...and we try to keep a really nice, consistent selection of mushroom TYPE, too! Our logs are also priced by size, from $25 to $250, shipping extra.
Simply choose your log size and then your mushroom type and make your purchase using our safe and secure online checkout. Your log will be shipped to you right away and will arrive inoculated and incubated and nearly finished colonizing and will be ready to bloom when the time is right. Depending on the species, your log should bloom within the first year, and continue to bloom and provide fresh, gourmet mushrooms for years to come!
We've already done all the work for you...all you have to do...is wait!
HOW TO FORCE BLOOM YOUR LOG:
To help your log bloom at its earliest, keep your mushroom log inside (indoors) during its FIRST freezing winter (while it finishes colonizing.) Anywhere out of direct sunlight, 50-80F and wait.) Come spring, after danger of frost, simply soak your log o decide whether you want to continue to grow your mushrooms inside or move it outside. Outside is easiest...just toss it onto the earth in deep shade, soomewhere cool, where it the rains. Note: mushrooms don't die during the winter freeze...they simply go dormant, and resume their thing when it warms up.... so keeping your log protected its first winter, means mushrooms SOONER! Soon...and many times...and for years to come... you'll be harvesting your own fresh, log-grown, organic, gourmet edible mushrooms!
