This is what I discovered when I went to check out the mushrooms this morning.
Along the very edges of those which have opened up to resemble a toadstool, dripped a black substance.
I went in and got my husband and our decision was to remove this entire "family" to garbage by digging them up along with another bunch that was beginning so that no animal would be tempted to "partake".
These are like no other mushrooms I have seen. " The End"
