The wanting to use mushrooms as I saw it was mostly my decision as I was pretty much able to do what I wanted and saw them as fun to use. It grew into the habitual use of them as it was nearly every Christmas and Thanksgiving that I was able to go out and pick them. It almost seems as though I was meant to do mushrooms as I found them in the most unlikely places when I was not really looking for them.
So as any person who likes to dose knows , I liked them enough to do them as often as possible. They seemed to me perfectly safe . Then I was turned on to this book by Carlos
something or other and the book talked about this guy named Don Juan who was supposedly a sorcerer. By the time I had read that book I had already done about a bunch of acid and did a ton of mushroom trips.
I thought it amazing that this thing called sorcery had the use of mushrooms involved , and I started thinking , Hmm I have a pretty good start as it seems it takes years in order to learn to see and whatnot.
I ended up reading all of those books as I am pretty sure a lot of other folks did the same thing.
Anyway , as it turns out I was right about getting a good start on this thing called power and such else as I experienced some of the things that were discussed in the books and I was pretty much blown away.
After I had a place to live I wanted to grow some mushrooms and so I read Mushroom Cultivator , found a Pressure cooker cheap , got some spores and jars , and grew some mushrooms first in a quart jar using a chunk of a small 1/2 inch thick layer of sterilized white rice that had been cooked . I carefully got some spores on a scalpel that had been heated with a alcohol flame and put those on the rice. I did about three jars as I had heard that there are contaminants everywhere . Good thing because I had heard rightly. Of the best looking white rice jars I placed carefully a quarter of the pie into a quart jar about half full of sterilized wheat berries.
After the wheat berries were covered in white I started giving fresh air and soon thereafter less than a week there were pins and then mushrooms.
I was obviously stoked at that point . I took the fresh mushrooms of the first ever grow of mine (there were about five of them) and made a tea and drank it and sure enough thought these were choice . Major choice.
So I have done nothing else except learn how to pasteurize and case and water and fan and make spore prints and be sneaky and in general be a bad man.
