Q: I have mushrooms growing throughout my yard. May I eat any of them?
A: Please do not eat any of the mushrooms from your yard or those growing in wooded areas. It takes quite a bit of skill to identify edible mushrooms and I would not want any of you to end up poisoned because you made the wrong choice. The U.S. Dept of Agriculture has a website with a list of edible mushrooms found in forest areas: http://www.fsl.orst.edu/mycology/poster/poster.html and you could purchase a field guide on edible mushrooms found in North America.
