Puffballs

Puffball

I’ve noticed that there are a lot of Puffball mushrooms out there right now. They grow in a variety of habitats and can be found on your lawn and well as in the forest.

These mushrooms are part of the so-called FOOLPROOF FOUR. A book on mushroom identification describes this mushroom as “eminently edible”, I’ve never been brave enough to try eating one and I would advise extreme caution when trying any wild mushroom.

These mushrooms are called Puffballs because when they ripen they will explode into a puff of spores. They can be almost irresistable to kick when you’re out walking in the woods.
