We used inoculator tubes to place spawn in each hole, then sealed it with cheese wax heated to 400 degrees F. We carried the finished logs to the shade house (85% shade cloth) and stacked them lincoln log style.
We have room for 11 stacks of 20 logs. We did 60 last weekend and will do another 60 this weekend. By the time we're done, we'll have drilled and filled 10,550 holes.
Next Spring we'll move the logs from stacks to leaning upright in the forest. Like the Oyster mushrooms we may get some fruiting this Fall but the bulk will be next Spring.
These logs will produce for years to come and our hope is to start a mushroom community supported agriculture program (CSA) once we've proven our ability to produce large quantities of high quality mushrooms.
