Mushrooms, Micorrhizae, and garden trees

I can't quite say this is a how-to: I am trying to develop my processes.

I am getting ready to try to put in some trees, and I read that symbiotic (mycorrhyzae) mushrooms can really boost the growth and yield. Now, If I understand correctly, one common mycorhyzzal mushroom is the amanita. I really don't want to encourage amanitas. Someone sees a death-cap, and thinks it a straw mushroom, and that would be very bad.

So... what I'm intending to do is this:

Apple Pie: A Case Study

Almost 50 years ago, my husband Brian was visiting relatives. An eleven-year-old, he was hanging out in the kitchen where there were wonderful smells and interesting things to do. His grandmother was there and asked him for some apples from the backyard. Young Brian checked the tree carefully for good apples and came in empty handed, informing her that they were all bad. They looked like this, or worse:

a call to relocate to Europe

my argument is simple: mankind did not pop into existence a few thousand years ago. So what are you prepping for? A limited cataclysm did not wipe the Earth clean of people 13,000 years ago. It was much more serious than that. Our ancestors were neither suicidal, retarded, nor ignorant. And yet they were thrown into a new stone age (after building things like Puma Punku which we couldn't build today if we chose to).

There was no lettuce

I went to the supermarket (Aldi, if you must know) and there was no lettuce. No lettuce! Now it might be that they had cases more in the back, but I am guessing that will not be the reason some time very soon. Or if there is lettuce it will sharply more expensive. Why? The drought in California.
