shiitake plug popping

Cooperative tasks are rewarding. A crew of home-educated children got some teamwork experience, and the reward of fresh mushrooms, when they helped out with shiitake production last week.
Our urban log lot uniquely located centre-ville in Kingston Ontario is getting a boost this year – a run of new logs. Each log plugged is an accomplishment, and an opportunity to learn cooperation, accuracy, communication and time-management.
And, at the end of the day, when the mushrooms appear, what a tasty, meaty, shiitake treat. Salads, sautees, omelettes, sauces, burgers, stock, soup and yum!
