Smiling Shiitake Logs

As I was leaving the farm yesterday, I looked up and noticed our pile of inoculated shiitake logs smiling back at me.

A happy pileThis year, I have been working as Allen Matthews’ Research Assistant on a project focused on market assessment for forest-grown shiitake mushrooms in the northeast. As we work on our research, in coordination with shiitake producers around the region, we all are looking forward to harvesting more delicious forest grown mushrooms when the weather warms.

It seems that the logs are enjoying the winter just fine though.
