Nameko is happening!  It’s a “natural fruiting” mushroom, meaning that it fruits naturally, when the conditions are prime for it!

Well, conditions are getting ever more prime. They’re pinning up small and slight on many of the cherry wood logs. I’ll keep my eyes peeled and we can hope together that they’ll fruit at a time that makes your delivery day!

Look for the brown bags, they’re filled with delicious mushrooms! (Shiitake or Nameko)
