Mycospored-logs-07

Remember the possibility of producing edible (and medicinal) mushrooms in the forest garden. Here is an Ailanthus tree we cut down to make way for nut trees. We loaded the chain saw with “mycospored oil” (vegetable oil carrying a huge load of mushroom spores), so that every cut of the saw also inoculated the stump, sections of trunk, and slash. In this case we were inoculating with spores for oyster mushroom, a particularly aggressive fungus that colonizes downed trees of many species.
