I was afraid of them concentrating chemicals in the lawn.
grows readily in dog poop as well as horse apples. I don’t know that it has any effect on fertilizers or herbicides. I doubt it concentrates fertilizers or herbicides if that is your concern. Several fungi break-down DDT, and other pesticides.
But I am always hesitant to pick them from urban areas like this. This particular patch is in a soccer field, and I have no idea what kind of fertilizers and/or herbicides they use there. I guess I could get cancer and fight it at the same time by eating these :)
A single young fungus can destroy a large tumerous-type cancer with a single meal. I prefer this in a simple gravy made of Jimmy Dean sausage and thickened with a roux, over baked or mashed potatoes. Good eating!
