I have access to used coffee grounds, pine saw dust, and straw. Which culinary mushrooms could I grow with these? I would like to get into growing my own mushrooms and would prefer to start off with the more easier ones. Any advice is appreciated. I would be growing these outside. I have a shed I could grow some in. I also have some nice shady areas under oak trees. Thank you for taking your time to help me.

Fungi Perfecti has a great amount of info on the subject; Paul Stamets has been researching fungi for a long time.

In your zone, I would start with pearl oysters (Pleurotus ostreatus) for "container" grows; as mentioned

For innoculating garden mulch, I too, recommend Wine caps, Garden giants, King Stropharia (Stropharia rugoso-annulata); as mentioned above as well

Thanks for the reply.
I guess I will get started with Oysters and king strophara.
 
Roses are red, violets are blue. Some poems rhyme and some don't. And some poems are a tiny ad.
