First Oyster

We had some warm days recently (hard to believe now that we're back to 30s and 40s and they're calling for snow tomorrow!) and warm days means the mushrooms start growing.

Jeremy has been out setting up shade cloth and checking on everything. He has found a couple tiny little freeze-dried shiitake, obviously from last season that decided to grow at some point.

But today he came home with this beauty, the first oyster mushroom of the season:



I didn't get a shot of the top of it, but this is what the top of an oyster looks like (courtesy of a nice specimen from last year):



We're looking forward to warmer weather and lots of mushrooms!

How nice. That certainly is something to look forward too.
