there is a birch tree on the far side of my neighbor’s yard…

and tree roots can extend a long way…guess this tree and its fungal companions found a way to fruit beyond the concrete layer; clever little fungi!
(and makes a lot more sense than mycelia brought along in a square of sod)

non-MR involutus…no tree associates nearby!

the only tree in our garden is a fig tree, far removed from this fence-side fruiting. adjacent neighbor’s backyard is covered in concrete. they are emerging from sod put down over a year ago. any ideas??!
