New to Growing

Hey, I am new to growing and I have some basic questions for you guys to get me started. First off I live in Michigan which isn't a very warm state. Anyways, I have a heated garage which I can get the heat in there to around 70 degrees(steady) in the winter. Now what I want to know is if I can grow year round in my garage without having to use any artificial lighting? There is a window in the garage and I can get natural light into there. In the case that I have to use a light I want to use one that is small and portable. I just don't want the whole world knowing that I grow shrooms. While I hear that 70 degrees isn't an optimal temperature, I understand that it will merely slow down the growth of my shrooms rather than stop them from growing all together. So, any suggestions?

I would use a TIT for creating incubation temperatures for your jars, if that is what you will be using. 70ish temps are really low for incubation and you will need to drop the temps to initiate fruiting which would mean that you would have to go below 70 to do that, which is not good. The light that comes in through the garage window should be sufficient enough to grow mushrooms.

I'm sorry, but what does TIT stand for?

tub in tub its an incubator. Two tubs of equal size, bottom tub has water and an aqaurium heater in it, place other tub on top of that one and place jars inside.

You can just keep the jars in your house while they're colonizing. They're fairly easy to hide if you feel like you need to do so. And then after colonization, move them to the garage to fruit. So basically...
Incubate in your warm house, and keep the fruiting chambers out side.You can also use a heating pad, but that runs the risk of over heating, or risk of fire.
