A Quick Intro
« on: October 12, 2011, 01:27:16 PM »
Hey guys an gals,I just wanted to say G'day and introduce myself to this fantastic new forum   8)

Been a long time edible grower with some down-time but I'm finally getting back into it now and very pleased to see this site after thinking the old Oz one was dead.

I'm looking forward to getting to know some more growers and finally growing out again. Also hooking back up with not only the Aussie mates but also with the rest of you fellow Gourmet Growers!

Thanks to Cody and Punkin already for the warm welcome and thanks also to NSF for providing a great forum for us!

Let's get shroomin   :D

Welcome aboard and I'm glad to see your shroom mojo is coming back. 

Thanks for posting an intro.  It's not a rule to post one but I really like that lots of people are putting one up.  It's just that little bit more social, that handshake when you meet.

What are you current shroom plans?  Setup?  Hopes?  Goals?

Thanks NSF no probs :)

Well I used to grow a fair while back and a few setbacks and moving house too many times has held up production.

I've got a perspex glovebox,PC,Jars,gravy buckets(Punkin Tek ;) ) and some cultures in the fridge in the shed which I haven't checked on for ummm way too long LOL

I eat a shiteload of Oysters and Shiitake and am on a limited income so now we've settled in somewhere I can kick off again, I'm getting back into it ASAP.

I also want to supplement our Family income as we have Farmers Markets on every weekend and no-one here except the supermarkets are selling them.They are screaming out for people to trade at these markets and there is a spot with my name on it.

I'm ordering some pre-colonised bags from Punkin as I had in the past to get me going ASAP (and so we can feed my belly and not the supermarkets :) )

So yeah,basically I want to be the shroom man here as well as get back into the fun side of DIY!!

Hey mushroombloke,I'm in NSW in the south west slopes.
I believe the banana leaf substrate works well from memory,well from an old member on another forum anyway.
I think he also added coffee grinds to the mix?
I'm just about to head outside and start getting things ready,but I'll dig up some pics and post them tonight!

Cheers and thanks mate.

Viper, your signature reminds of the (possibly duke nukem) quote: "I'm here to kick ass and chew bubblegum.  And I'm all outta bubblegum"

Doesn't quite work the same with mushrooms instead of bubblegum but whatever :P
