    Most fungi are good for the garden, they break down cellulose. I wouldn't eat the stuff, though.

    Great Mushrooms(y). There are no bad ones in my book Just a few silly people who eat them before knowing what they are. Your garden is better with them & richer for it;) they only feed on dead matter & help clean up your soil for next years plants.They are not one of the really bad poisonous ones but not sure of the species off the top of my head ps looks like one has been eaten by something:D

    Could be honey fungus. Whatever you do, don't eat it. You need to show how the gill separates from the stem; the root ball bulbous or not and if there is a ring somewhere between the gill and the root. Don't eat any mushrooms as some nasties can give you multiple organ failure! No laughing matter!

    Hi alp, thanks for the info. Will do more reading. I won't eat those. Just want to know if it's safe to kids and pets. If not, I will get rid of those.
