Growing Mushrooms

A rather peculiar sight that needs to be shared is the seeding, growing and harvesting of mushrooms. This particular picture is I believe of pine logs with small holes drilled in them and where the mushroom spores are seeded. The logs are then placed in teepee fashion and maintained in a cool, shaded and somewhat moist atmosphere. In the southern parts of South Korea these teepee log mushroom farms have been situated in small forests or along the sunless forest edges. This particular mushroom farm was at the edge of a bamboo forest near Damyang, the city of bamboo, and was sheltered in someone's backyard in their vinyl house, otherwise known as 'green house'.
