The Blue Oyster (Pleurotus ostreatus) is one of the quickest running mushrooms around and is tried and true in the world of cultivation.
If you have some Aspen/Poplar trees around your area, you can inoculate totems, stumps and logs in the spring and then enjoy a fruitful harvest by late summer to early fall.
The oyster mushroom can fully colonize logs in 3 to 6 months and will produce oyster mushrooms that are meatier and more delectable then you can find at any store.
This mushroom is a versatile go to fungi for us as we love to use it in soups, with breakfast, on top of salads and pretty much any other meal we want to take to the next level.
