Shiitake cultivation

Fun fact! Shiitake mushrooms can be produced by placing cultured fungus called spawn into holes drilled in fresh cut hardwood. These logs are then incubated under forest shade for about a year before fruiting begins. The most recommended wood for production is the oak genus of the beech family.
