Dedicated fans of the blog will surely have been asking for the last few months, what happened to those mycelleum infested logs that were last seen speeding off in the back of a Golf in April 2010? Well they've been brewing away in black bin bags behind my dad's shed for 2 years. It was a damp, dank day today and it was feeling mushroomy so I decided to unleash them on the back garden.
Remove all the debris to reveal the logs in their grisly glory. Something about duct tape and bin bags prepares your mind for a horrifying discovery.
Time to see if there's a wristwatch or tattoos under the black plastic.
Just some stinky looking logs, looks like some fungal activity on the surface here and there, maybe it's working okay!
The log-ends look suitably decrepid.
They're supposed to go somewhere out of the wind and fairly sheltered from the sun so i'm going to stick them under this azalea in the corner of my mum and dad's garden.
One end is supposed to be raised off the ground for some reason, so I plonked them around like this. Only 12 months to go until we may see some mushroom activity now, I can hardly wait!
