I know you guys are like very very smart, and you have helped me out a whole lot. But you must get tired of answering questions. I read the archives

Get every book there is...waste time and money. There is nothing published that can hold a candle to what Nan has put together for us in the Archives. All the books I have seen concern either advanced or outdated methods. When I first considered this hobby I bought Harris's paradoxically titled "Growing Wild Mushrooms." It is okay but it is pre-PF tek and therefore not for the beginner. Go PF Tek, it is pretty straightforward. If you have any questions ask here and you will be answered. There's too much crap out there to try and find a book. Good luck.

What do you still need to know, friend?

From what I've gathered Nan is educated in Biology and I'd guess a few other disciplines. For the last year he's been studying "shrooms" and he is a wellspring of info and good vibes. I've got my first straw tek pinning now that is supposedly a hard one to pull off. I followed his words to the letter and it worked like a charm. I think his handle should be Mother Nature. Maybe he should write the "last word" book. I'll buy one! Or two!

I recommend the Archives here, and these:

The Mushroom Cultivator by Paul Stamets and J.S. Chilton

Growing Gourment & Medicinal Mushrooms by Stamets
