    WOW....I usually find those around here...only half that big though! My dad loved those sliced and fried in butter...he called them "loaves of bread." If you cut it open and it's snow white inside it's still good, if it's greenish and wormy...no good. The smaller ones are better...not as rubbery. They are very abundant this time of year andare called "puffballs" by most. I don't care for shrooms but I do love to pick them.

    No, we probably won't eat it! :) When we first saw it we thought it was a ball or something. But the weird thing is we didn't see it this morning but at night we did. It must have been growing all day! :)

    True... It does look like it could pop! :) But I really don't want to take a chance and get poisoned or something. :slapfloor: Plus I don't like mushrooms that much.

    That is one giant puffball--and yes, they are very good to eat! :drool:

    When they get old they turn green and dry out and when I was a kid I would always kick the dried out ones and this big cloud of green dust would come out...it was fun.

    I think it is still growing. I asked my science teacher and he said that it is a puffball and that I could bring it into school. He read on the internet that they can grow up to 3 feet!!!! :shocked: I am going to let it continue to grow and then I will bring it to school.
