Oyster mushrooms are a good foraging mushrooms – can be grown on logs, sawdust or coffee grounds. They get their name based on looks – but do have a slight fishy smell about them.

Chicken of the Woods is another mushroom with chicken-like tasted textures and can be grown easily in the backyard.

Other mushroom varieties you should consider include:  Wine Caps. Lion’s Mane, Portobello, and White Button Mushrooms – which are the most common of edible mushrooms.
