Look Ma, I'm Spawning!

I was comin' up kinda empty-handed for a side dish for the roast turkey breast and was just about to resort to Stir-Fried Atomic Fire Balls, when I saw this through the kitchen window:
This was the other piece of white oak that I innoculated with shitake mushroom spawn last February. Miraculously, the spawn have fruited over just the past two months and now my log runneth over.
The real miracle is that the shitake spawn somehow gave birth to oyster mushrooms! They're huge...
The only word to describe them is "voluptuous." 
Especially after a slow saute in grapeseed oil...
This is my kind of farming.
