For the last several years, I have been getting this yellow mushrooms in my backyard. They turn brown as they get older. They grow in large clumps. Are they edible or dangerous? I was thinking about getting my golf clubs out and teeing off on them, or would that spread them more every year? Should I use my driver or 9 iron?

I have been doing some investigating, my guess is ringless honey mushrooms. I have some pics of a spore print on the Indiana page and Minn page.

They certainly appear to be Honey mushrooms. Some eat them but they take a LOT of pre-preparation to get rid of the toxins they contain. We have feinds who took over 2 hours to pre-prepare them prior to taking them home to cook. It involves par boiling more than once. I personjally can't eat them at all since the pre- cooking does not remove every bit of the toxin. They would have to be growing from an underground source of wood. Did you have a tree removed or one nearby where the mushrroms could be growing from the roots, especially if a tree is diseased? They are not considered deadly but cause bad gastrointestinal issues.

I decide not to eat them. I was getting these mushrooms around a maple tree for the past several years. Last year, I cut the tree down to get more light on my vegetable garden. This year it was very dry. I had a little rain and these mushrooms shot up around the ground stump of the tree. With all the mushrooms growing on it’s roots, this tree must have been in trouble with before I cut it down. They do seem to be Ringless honey mushrooms. Some say they are not edible and some say they are delicious? I don’t like the sound of toxins in these mushrooms. Many people can’t eat them. I’m getting so much vegetables from my garden, I don’t need to eat them. The only wild mushroom that I have eaten are morels.
