oyster mushroom update

it looks like we're having some success with our january 29th oyster inoculation.  the burlap bundles and the nursery containers are showing signs of good colonization and one species, the king oyster, has gotten so happy it has started making babies...

noticed something interesting protruding from one of the drain holes at the bottom of the king oyster nursery can tower...

those little guys will be big tasty mushrooms in no time.  neat.  very.
