Planting Shiitake Mushrooms in Dead Logs
This is a trial to grow Shiitake and Oyster mushrooms in Southern Alberta using local wood.
Clean logs are harvested at their optimum sugar content. They must be free of wild fungus and have minimal bark damage. Holes the size of the birch wood mushroom plugs are drilled into the logs. The plugs, already inoculated with mushroom mycelium, are pounded into the holes and sealed with bees wax to keep out competitive wild fungi. These logs are kept damp and then wrapped for protection from the cold over the winter.
The following summer, when sufficient colonization occurs on the logs, they will be submerged into cold water to stimulate the growth of the fungi mycelium into mushrooms.
