Type of Plant

Asked August 8, 2014, 1:52 AM EDT

Do you know what type of plant this is. I have these growing in my yard and do not know what they are. I would love to know if I can eat them or not. We have not touched them and will not until we know what they are. Is there any way you know by looking at a picture? A lot of the green things are orange now. I can also say when they first start growing they have like this paper thing around it which makes it look like a pine cone kind of.
