Mushrooms good or toxic?

Asked May 5, 2018, 11:17 AM EDT

Hi there i recently started a vegetable garden in a box that was previous bare. These started popping up and I’m not certain if they are toxic and should be removed, or if they are good. Any assistance is appreciated. Thanks!

This looks like the fruiting body of an Earthstar mushroom. There are several different species. They are not harmful to have in the ground where you're growing your garden. You can dig them out and discard them if you want.
