First of all I would like to compliment you all on a great online community. Nice job
By way of introduction, I live in connecticut and have been a longtime mushroom enthusiast. I got my start as a child spending some of years in a very rural part of Greece where I learned to forage a few basic edibles (white buttons, puffballs and blewits). Then as a teenager and adult I guess I was more interested in psychoactives until I once again moved to a rural region (CT) a few years ago. Being surrounded by woods and nature I once again took up foraging and for the past few years have been enjoying wonderful woodland bounties of all sorts of wild edibles - my favorite local varieties include black trumpets, bicolor boletes, chanterelles, oysters, crown coral, chicken of the woods, hen of the woods, aborted entoloma, and many more.
Now I'm ready to take my hobby one step further and begin trying to grow edibles in my basement and I thought a good first step would be to get on The Shroomery and start asking questions.
I've been toying with the idea for about a year and done fairly extensive research online already. I want to start out pretty basic with the goal of creating a consistently yielding small grow facility for personal consumption - I figure oysters are the best place to start.
I'm still searching the forums and finding tons of great info - but I'm sure questions will arise. But for now - thank you all for sharing so much great info here, I look forward to earning my stripes on the board.
