More logs

Jeremy spent this weekend getting more logs - finally! There have been all sorts of delays this year so I think he is excited to finally have another load to work on.

Van is partially emptied.

Logs are piling up.

These are much mossier and snowier than the last batch.

Now that is a lot of logs!

That is all oak. Jeremy also picked up a load of Poplar which we're storing at a friend's garage. He'll be doing totem method on those. More on that when he gets to that garage full of logs!

Ok More questions: at what temperature do you put them outside. I was hoping to get mine outside in the next month. Are they ok outside if there is still a chance of freeze? You really have a huge mushroom operation there!

You can put your logs outside anytime, but if it is too cold, the mycelium will go dormant, and stop growing. I don't know exactly at what temp they go dormant, but it doesn't hurt the mycelium. The biggest danger in putting them outside this time of the year is frost. You should protect the logs with shade fabric or a tarp.
