Shiitake dowels
    #977013 - 10/20/02 02:40 PM (16 years, 1 month ago)

Someone had asked me about using dowels, you can make a lot more by filling bags but this is good enough for around the house :smile:  It's surprising, actually, how many a quart jar can hold.



Dowels from here:

http://www.midwestdowel.com/dowelpins.htm

Prep as follows;  Dowels were put into a big thermos with boiling water added.  This was sealed for a day, then decanted.  Another fill with boiling water, another day, and they were drained and put into jars.  A sprinkling of colonized birdseed is more than enough, you don't want too much seed.
PC'ing is the recommended procedure for dowels, but I have yet to see a problem doing it this way.  I bet even one of the steeping steps would be enough.

I don't know what I was thinking when I made them, though, it's way too early to plug logs. 

The company above is a very good one, the guy I talked to was very helpful.

It may look like a button mushroom right now, but wait until you see how it grows!

Part no. "PIN 0375".  The prices seemed reasonable, including shipping it was under 20$ for a thousand.  There are a couple of different choices in the type of wood you can choose, all hardwood [as furniture pins usually are].
Not many people have the luxury of being able to do outdoor logs;  they do make gread bordering for a garden, though.  I wish they would have produced this fall, but what can you do :tongue:
