Harvey has sprouted 4 rather impressive mushrooms, so it's time to harvest them and then start the rest cycle. Then, in two months, we fruit again, and there should be more mushrooms. Each successive fruiting (love that word!) should result in even more mushrooms, until the log plays out, which could be 2-3 years! Talk about a gift that keeps on giving!
Tonight, I'm just doing the basic summer meal: grilling some steaks, sauteeing some mushrooms, steaming some green veggie, and maybe making a little caprese salad. I got some little Ciliegine (cherry-sized) fresh mozzarella at Whole Foods, along with some really wonderful grape tomatoes from Publix to mix up with a little basil and olive oil. Yum, yum!
I'll add Harvey's contribution to the sauteed mushrooms, and I'm betting it will be a better dish for it. Here's some shots of Harvey and his mushrooms:
Sauteed in a little butter, olive oil, and wine, and we have ourselves a winner! I'll post again on Harvey when it's time to fruit. Good night, sweet log!
