Today was a fun day at the West Broad Street Farm here in Athens. I’ve been working there as of recent and am really enjoying the process of maintaining a larger garden/farm and being able to see the daily ins and outs of the process. Today I was so excited to be able to harvest Shitake Mushrooms from lovely mushroom logs..I learned that Mushrooms absolutely love water and the more watering the better. Some experts even suggest dipping mushroom logs in water for some hours so that they may be submerged in water.
Here are some magical mushrooms growing in nature. It was super fun harvesting them and sending them on to be sold. I want to learn more about the innoculation process of Shitakes.
