Any of you that follow our blogs will recall that there are a few farm tasks which I dread each year. Each year I do them and each year I dread them. The few that you already know of are planting strawberry plants (500 more will go in this spring) and planting potatoes (100 lbs of seed potatoes ordered). While I do dread these tasks I think mushroom log inoculation now takes the cake.
In the next few weeks log inoculation will take place. We inoculated 100 logs last year. This year we will be inoculating approx. 400 logs. This is a daunting task and unfortunately for the fingers, it is still cold outside when this inoculation happens.
The mushroom inoculation series of events….
If all goes well and the weather cooperates we will have our first shitake harvest in April or May! Look for them at the farm store!!
