I had a super wonderful opportunity to attend a mushroom workshop!! I had thought we were going to just listen to a lecture and then armed with our new knowledge, we were going to have to slug through the process on our own.
No, this was a hand-on workshop! Wow, was it ever wonderful! The instructor made the process really accessible, handled all the questions like a pro and got us all drilling, pushing in mycelium spores into the holes, and topping off the holes with paraffin. It was a bunch of fun and so nice to have that kind of ‘controlled chaos’ that happens with a hand-on workshop.
After a busy two hours, I loaded up my THREE logs, and came home. Once home those logs needed to come out of the hot car, so I grabbed the first and smallest one (although it was still fairly heavy because this was all green wood). Almost set to the ground and it slipped a few inches right onto my small toe. Boy-howdy, did that hurt!! I doesn’t seem to be broken, I can bear weight just fine and flex my toes although it’s soar. It’s just bruised a pretty purple color.
We are getting a tremendous soaking, which doesn’t do well for us driving or flooding issues, but it will be great start for these logs.
Our instructor recommended Field & Forest Products for further information and/or products. I look forward learning, doing, and eating more!
