I've tried both the kits and the logs, I harvested some but not many from the kit and none at all off the logs! The best results I've had in the 'grow my own mushroom' experiments was from some spent mushroom compost bought as soil conditioner for the allotment, we had some lovely mushrooms off it!
Some time ago I started building raised beds in the veggie plot and to help speed up filling them I bought a trailer load of spent mushroom compost then topped the beds off with compost and topsoil. a good while after, I went down to pick courgettes and found a lovely "snow scene." It was a complete white-out! We ended up sick of mushies. I suppose it was just like a very big kit so give it a go!
I've done the same, picked mushrooms in the garden after spreading mushroom compost. Did have a kit years ago and got a nice lot off it but didn't think it was cost effective, just nice to have a go at. Other thing is when you want mushrooms there wont be any to pick and then when you dont you'll have loads.
