August 30, 2010 – First Oyster Mushroooms

I was very surprised to find oyster mushrooms this week – I didn’t think to look, since we’ve finally had a dry stretch of weather. I was giving a farm tour as we may be the site of a possible farm event later this fall, otherwise I wouldn’t have seen them at all.

This one is a little past prime, but it’s fun to see them start to grow. Martin was making his signature beef stroganoff and lamented that we didn’t have any mushrooms and I was happy to direct him to the mushroom logs
