Charles, Where are you? (state /mountains/desert?)

That looks rather like a dried fungus---hard to tell from the picture.

Re: What is this in my garden?


Look up, " PUFFBALLS"

a variety of fungus, that has no use, but to decay old vegetation.

You've apparently never had fried puffballs (the edible varieties of course)

Nope: The only ones that I was aware of do not even appear appetizing.

Of course some cultures eat slimy snails too, but they look disgusting.

Yup - with you on shellfish. Large edible puffballs can be panfired and they're kinda like mushrooms but firmer and with more flavour but they have to be picked at just the right time. Same as fiddlehead ferns. Maybe a weird northern thing. Like our 'beavertails' - kinda like a flat donut (I've also had real beavertail - no rude comments please)

I've heard that they are edible--but I'm surprised to hear that they taste good.

Some years I get a lot of them in my yard---I might just try eating one.

With gathering, cooking and eating wild things, esp. fungi, Google is your friend.

Re: What is this in my garden?


My older brother is a mushroom hunter---and I was once good at tracking down edible wild foods---one thing I learned (the hard way) is that 'edible' and 'tasty' are not the same---
I've tasted more gross plants the were listed as 'edible'--

Re: What is this in my garden?


I once let a Cute Waitress talk me into eating Oysters, Dang if I wanted to eat mud, it would have been cheaper to go down to the creek.

Tried Squid once too, more like chewing on an inner tube, than food.

Bull Fries ain't bad if you don't think too much about it.

Re: What is this in my garden?


this is one of the funniest posts Ive read in a long time...here's a link to a story on puffballs that fits perfectly w this post. Here's the beginning of the post:

"A puffball was the first wild mushroom I ever tried in the summer of 1973. I had heard of a rule about puffballs while at a party held by my art professor. In attendance were..."
