How do I know when my mushrooms are ready for harvest?
Shiitake mushrooms are ready to harvest just after the "veil" separates from the stalk, revealing the gills. The cap should be very round and convex-it's edge curled down towards the middle. Once the edge of the cap flattens or becomes concave, the mushroom is considered "over-ripe".
Tree Oysters are ready to harvest basically when they stop growing. This usually happens when they measure about 2" across. As with the shiitake, they should be round, convex and fleshy.
