The Adventures of Mushroom Farming Begins....

Here in three neat stacks are 213 logs
cut from hardwood last week.
Each log is 40 inches long.

This angle grinder has the bit attachment
needed to drill the holes on all the logs!

These are the inoculators!
(They will deliver the mushroom spawn
into the holes in all the logs....)
Here are the blocks of cheese wax.....
They are melted and used to seal the holes of spawn and
the ends of the logs!

Here is ONE of the bags of mushroom
spawn that were used!

All together used 4 bags of
spawn to fill all those logs!!
(That equals 22 pounds)

NOW the hard part...

I've shared this on Simple Lives Thursday!
Please go check out some
wonderful ideas shared by others!
