Dude. Dudes. Look what I found today!
It’s a giant puffball mushroom! I’ve never seen a giant one before! I used to play with these things when I was a kid, but those were always little like… tennis ball sized at best.
Fun fact I didn’t know until recently: Puffballs are edible. I didn’t intend to take it home with me, but I broke it away from its base while I was checking it out, so home with me it came.
Don’t worry - I cross-referenced it extensively online and double checked with someone who knows mushrooms first. It’s definitely a puffball, and definitely safe to eat. I cooked some up with onions and steak for dinner and it was super tasty. Gonna be trying a bunch of puffball recipes over the next few days because daaang I have a lot of mushroom to use up.
