I'm trying to remember what this tool was called... It was shown to me years ago by a mate who was doing cotton chipping (i.e. hacking the weeds out from between rows of cotton bushes with a long hoe) - the thing looked a bit like this from memory, only with a long handle, maybe with the side-blades a bit more hooked? I don't know if it was specifically designed for cotton-chippin' - it might've been? I'm pretty sure it was designed by an Australian company at least, and I think it might've had some cute trademark name related to the shape??? I really need a decent long-handled hoe-like tool for chipping out weeds from a standing position, and while I do like the two-sided ones which have blade/fork or blade/spike or what-have-you, the Batman tool had even more useful shapes because you could use the front too, so you had like a front pushing-blade & two side blades & cutting hook bits, all on the one tool... It's probably not nearly as cool as I remember, but I'd like to track them down anyway if anyone can help. Thanks!
I've been doing some learning lately, and I've been finding a few good sources of information that I wanted to share. So I thought we could start working on a big thread with a whole bunch of resources and information for people who want to start learning or further their knowledge with mycology. Feel free to share your knowledge people! For Melbournians, here is a really comprehensive Psilocybe Subaeruginosa hunting and identification guide: http://endofthegame.net/2012/05/09/psychedelic-mushrooms-and-you/ (includes identification, habitat, imposters, drying, photos and more) And here's a thread on shroomery with some more Psilocybe Subaeruginosa habitat photos: http://www.shroomery.org/forums/showflat.php/Number/16164170/fpart/all Here's a neat online mushroom identification tool to help narrow down the possibilities: http://www.rogersmushrooms.com/gallery/chooser.asp (although i wouldn't trust it unconditionally, i think this can be helpful for beginners like myself to learn faster) Here's a good series of videos about growing mushrooms which I was recommended by migraineur: http://www.mushroomvideos.com/ (you'll have to pay for full access, though) Here is a list of books about Australian fungi specifically, for those with the money to track down and buy a copy: http://www.fungibank.csiro.au/topic_7_2.htm (if anyone has an opinion on any of these books I'd love to hear it. I'm considering buying one, but there's very limited information about them and a distinct lack of reviews)
