I'm in Southern Indiana (actually a subtropical zone in the summer) Zone 6 most of the time.
What Fungi would you suggest for good nutrition, easy to handle for the beginner in this area of the country? I love to eat them and take a supplement that has several mushrooms in it, but would like to grow my own and have plenty to cook with as well.
I do have white oak available and forest with variety of trees.
I'd stick with the standard go-to species: King Stropharia in the garden and Oysters on logs, straw, coffee grounds or other ag wastes. However, I would run with the subtropical Oysters such as the pinks (Pleurotus djamor) and yellows (Pleurotus citrinopileatus).
