No specimen available

Found these in my raised bed garden soil which is made up of peat moss, manure, and vermiculite. They have black stems, but I think the sun might be drying them out. The small new ones sprouting are very white. There is an odor near them that’s very woody and smells slightly sweet/rotten – but it comes and goes. What are these? I used the Mycokey identifier and it came up with Inocybe fraudans as the most likely.
