Thanks Eggsy. I want to start small, DH is more of a "go big or go home" kind of guy.
One thing someone told us yesterday was to use cheese wax to keep the bugs from eating the plugs. Things like that made it worth going to. And the oyster mushrooms really caught my fancy. They were growing them in clear bags of mulch stuff and hanging them in the shade from tree limbs.
It will be fun to research it all anyway.
