Patience is rewarded

Three years ago our son gave us some wood plugs impregnated with oyster mushroom spores. We drilled some fairly fresh ash and field maple logs and inserted the plugs – and nothing happened.  Now one of the logs has sprouted an oyster mushroom – but not enough to eat.  Coincidently at the same time some natural oyster mushrooms appeared on an ash tree.
