I now see dog vomit fungus anywhere that I've laid down cardboard, spread wood chips, or filled in a pit with packed down crushed tree twigs. Tree branches packed into hugelpits but are still awaiting a covering often sprout a string of yellow or white little mushrooms. The newer garden beds get colorful mushrooms along their edges ....white, yellow, and even reds.
Above, this is a shelf fungus, which is common enough around here. They sprout from dead tree branches and stumps. This specimen is especially colorful. I just wanted to share its beauty with you.
Found these mushrooms in the deep mulch. First time I've seen these here. I don't recall ever gathering mushrooms that look like these. Probably the spores came in with some of the green waste I picked up from other people's properties.
The grassy areas often have large white mushrooms. And out by my driveway gate I've got a large fairy ring going.....
I find it to be amusing that farm visitors are aghast that there are so many mushrooms around the place. Many make it a point to tell me how to get rid of them, and are confused when I say that I purposely brought them here. None of them are edible, but they sure are interesting. Plus they're doing a very important job for this farm.
