OYSTER MUSHROOM LOGS
We have an oyster mushroom flush.
With the hopes of a summer flush, we soaked the logs for two evenings. Very supprized when a lot of the logs had a flush.
Not only do we have logs to sell we have mushrooms.
Check the front gate or call us to view the logs.
We have spent most of our time working with Phoenix oysters.
They not only taste great and have excellent health benefits, they have other valuable properties.
Phoenix oyster mycelium loves petroleum products and agriculture and human coliform waste. A trench cut down hill or around a contaminated area then filled with oyster mycelium will clean the area of the contamination.
Your log needs to be kept from drying out. We recommend an eight inch deep planting in deep shade but where rain can fall on your logs.

I love that mushroom mycelium is everywhere here on the Sunshine Coast. Our Mount Elphinstone has great wild mushroom picking areas. Oyster mushrooms often grow on logs in the where we walk our dog Fiona.
preserves to our table. The simple task of turning our garden products into squash scones, strawberry rhubarb pie or garlic scape pickles brings our lives into closer alignment to the full circle of life that living through the land brings.
RR7 focus is oyster mushroom logs. We only sell logs after the first flush of mushrooms. Removing the wait of 1 or 2 years, our logs will flush again whenever conditions are the same as the date of their first flush. Ensuring an enjoyable experience of watching your log produce mushrooms every year right from the start.
Our process, developed over 5 years of research and development, allows us to provide mushroom logs at an affordable cost.
We have inoculated logs with
Phoenix oyster (Pleurotus pulmonarius)
Blue oyster (Pleurotus ostreatus)
Golden oyster (Pleurotus citinopileatus)
Shiitake (Lentinula edodes)
Each mushroom cultivar has a different time of year when it flushes. Making it possible to create a garden feature that often has mushrooms as part of it.s content.
