soaking logs in a lake?
    #2478171 - 03/27/04 04:03 PM (12 years, 8 months ago)

i want to get a large outdoor gourmet mushroom garden started this season.

i have a question about soaking the logs. i have a boat dock on a fairly clean lake. i was wondering if it would be a good idea to tie up a bundle of logs to the side of my dock and soak them that way. i could tie anchors to them, so that they would sink as much as possible.

what do you guys think? would this be a good way to soak them or would there be too many contams in a lake?

I think it would work. Would you be soaking after the logs are fully colonized? Fully colonized logs have their own protection against contaminates.

I think it would work as well. I wish I had a lake and a dock.

I soak my logs in a small pond. I use a coil rope and a cinder block. I tie the cinder block on with a bowline and then tie the logs on in the middle with a clove hitch. You kind of get a string of fireworks effect going on.
