Learning About Mushrooms in North Carolina

About a year ago, I started searching for alternative food sources with a survivalist frame of mind. I wanted to know what was edible in the forest if the world went to heck in a hand basket.

I fell in love with mushrooms, which is a very interesting field. See this flush of oyster mushrooms I found in a nearby park about a mile from my home.

I inoculated my first bale of straw last week. I'm very excited and looking forward to my first flush of Oysters. I will take pictures and relay results. Thanks for all of your information.

That's fantastic, Ralph! More people should know what's edible in their general area. (I'll admit to not being as knowledgeable as I'd like). I also think your survivalist concerns are very valid.

Good luck with your first Oyster project. It's always so exciting when one starts growing mushrooms.

(And LOL to Jane's comment above. I'm liking the "mushrooms as fashion" viewpoint!)

Aren't those pretty! They remind me of turned up collars like Lauren Bacall used to wear
