    Do you guys see these? They seem numerous this year.

    i see them frequently in cow pastures or grassy areas. If you get them when they are really firm and new above the ground the they are delicious to eat. Meat should be solid white and very firm

    If there is a yellow ( or brownish orange) part in the meat mushroom I will not eat them. Slice thin like a ritz cracker. cut in to pieces about the size of the ritz cracker or jar lids. Brown in butter. Salt and pepper. Good eating.

    As always, Be very careful to properly ID the balls as puff ball mushrooms as misidentified mushrooms can poison you if eat the wrong ones.

    Nice find, nice video as always. I found a tiny bolete Friday and will be checking it again this morning. Yesterday while weeding, I found many of one of my favorites to photograph, Bird's Nest. Chiggers discovered me in the process, so I could not obtain afternoon nor night shots. I mixed up some Seven at dusk and went to town with all, spraying everything in sight except for actual flower blooms in hopes of managing some better shots throughout today.

    One good thing about them is that they are easy to spot!
