I've been the mushroom farmer
for a few years now, admittedly only with my camera (until the damned thing broke), I don't have the nerve yet to pick and eat as I don't trust my reference books, actually I trust them fine its my ability to compare and contrast I don't trust, there is always to many possibilities in my mind.
What I would love is a knowledge share with an old mushroom hunter, the older the better as far as I'm concerned as they must have been doing it right in order to reach that age. Failing that I would like to use the photos on my site
to crowd source opinion and help me identify the cheeky we devils & angels and move forward into exploring there culinary delights with more confidence.
I'll keep building the collection up and hopefully find an accommodating venue to throw photos some on the walls, or whatever, the idea behind them is more of creative expression then documentation per-say, hence the little naked people that crop up every know and then (as in the pictured).
Another thing I have found difficult to find in NZ is a good grow your own kit or inoculated log?
