One man’s damp, dreary day is Domingo Medina’s idea of mushroom nirvana.

That’s when his shiitakes take off. They plump like fleshy little beach umbrellas, just waiting for Medina and his friends to harvest them from the bark of cut logs.

They’re only too happy to oblige.

“There’s a whole world of people out there growing them,” says Medina, part of Holy Shiitake, an experiment in mushroom farming by the New Haven Bioregional Group. “What this tells you is we can grow them in Connecticut, too.”
