Blogging??

I guess I forgot to blog since my first post on December 29, 2023! It's been a busy start to the year. Since there's no winter foraging I spend that time trying to take care of the business end of things. This website was a great start. There's still lots to see and do outside in the winter but I know I won't get the other necessary stuff done.


I've been trying to form an LLC for my company but can't figure out what SAIC code or NAICS or whatever numbers those are. I'm going to have to make a trip to the state house. Once that's done I need to get insurance. My business has so many facets that's I'm not sure how that's going to work. I'm also looking into merch. I want quality yet affordable. I want an option for women specific tees because not everyone is comfortable in a men's tee. The shape is all wrong for me! I'd love embroidered caps, too. And I want to support a local business! But getting people to call back is nearly impossible.


NH MycoCamp #3 is schedule for September 6-8. We outgrew our last venue. I've spent hours and hours online researching venues, emailing, and making calls. I thought I finally found a place and even visited the location with Melinda but it turns out that 11 of the beds are double. So unless we have 11 couples coming it won't work. The venue might still work but we'll have to revisit and be more creative with the sleeping arrangements.


I think it'll be a good season, when it finally gets here. Every weekend in September has been booked. The NEMF (Northeast Mycological Federation) foray is on the Cape in October and I'll be leading a walk. In August I'll be learning from Alan and Arleen Bessette alongside 11 other Myco enthusiasts at the Highlands Biological Station in North Carolina. If you don't know the Bessette's they write many of the top mushroom books here in the US. Sometime I'll do a more complete write-up of the Bessette's and their work in mycology. I've been contact by 4 garden clubs to present at their meetings. So far I am scheduled to teach two wild mushroom certification classes for Mushroom Mountain, one in upstate New York and one in Rhode Island. But before I could do that I had to take the MM course in Savannah, Georgia so I could observe how it's taught and so I could also be certified through their program which includes 8 state for a total of 9 that I am certified in. Like I said, it's been a busy couple of months.


Once I have a better handle on my schedule I'll be adding walks to the calendar and looking into selling at farm markets. I still have a few CSF (Community Supported Foraging) spots available for the coming season. More info can be found in my store/shop tab.


If you read this far, thank you! If not, I understand.
