I missed one of the largest flushes of mushrooms I’ve ever had by three or four days. I didn’t even think to be checking for them in our summer heat and it was just chance that I looked over in the woods, today, to find these. They are on three year old logs, which is all the more surprising.
We’ll see if we can dry a lot of them. I think we can, but many are spent and black. Too bad, the fresh shiitake are one our favorite crops.
