I can always tell when the wild mushrooms are out because at least one of my shiitake logs will start producing. They like heavy rains and major temperature changes. This stump is usually my worst producer, but it gave me mushrooms the size of salad plates last week. One of my other logs produced several shiitakes of a more reasonable size.
For lunch over the weekend, I made a stir-fry of Asian eggplant, shiitakes, garlic, scallions, and basil.
Not bad. Not bad at all.
