While preparing to cut the grass today, I ran across this gigantic mushroom. In order to provide a sense of scale, I placed a CD on the ground next to the huge blob of fungus before snapping the photo.
I am not familiar with the various members of the mushroom family, so I cannot identify this particular specimen, and hence, cannot tell you if this is edible or not. But there is certainly one way to tell:
If you don’t hear from me for a little while, I’m sure you’ll have an inkling as to why!
