Ken's Mushrooms

This year Ken began doing something he has wanted to do for a long time - growing mushrooms.  We have several oak trees shading growing areas - garden, orchard, greenhouses.  And after he took down the first oak he started shiitake mushrooms on the oak that was the right size.

Then he started some mushrooms that required less than a year.  First there were oyster mushrooms - delicious.

Now he has wine caps.  They are juicy and have great flavor. 

With our uneven rainfall, the harvest has been somewhat unpredictable.  We have dried some for sale, too
