Shiitake Grower's Handbook
By Paul Przybylowicz and John Donoghue. The authors of this book have done a fine job of outlining the steps needed for selecting, inoculating, curing and cropping logs. Each step is referenced so that the devotee can pursue additional data via the extensive bibliography. (Please note that this book does not address sterile culture or spawn generation techniques, assuming that readers will buy their spawn from a third party.) Now includes a chapter on the production and fruiting of sawdust blocks. We welcome this contribution to mushroom culture. 217 pages.
