Shiitake Mushrooms Emerge at City Farmer’s Garden
Maria’s ‘babies’ have finally arrived in large numbers. Carefully watched and nurtured since April, 2007, these Shiitake mushrooms are ready for harvest. They have grown on oak logs that were culled from Stanley Park after a devastating storm and delivered to us by the Vancouver Park Board. Hard to believe that anyone, that’s us, can grow such wonderful fungi in a city garden.
Thanks to Jim from Vancouver Parks for giving us the Stanley Park oak logs.
