About a month ago, right along the bottom of the fence that seperates my neighbors property from mine, about 2 dozen mushrooms sprouted up in 3 spots. Today I walked into that section of the backyard for the first time in a month and the 2 dozen along the fence line has now turned into a 10' by 10' patch, easily with 10x the amount originally spotted.
I did a little reading on this, and apparently killing the "fruit" (top) of the mushroom only possibly prevents future spreading, as you need to treat the underlying soil first.
This section of the backyard is moist and doesn't receive much sunlight at this time of year.
I understand that mushrooms are basically harmless (and might even be good for the soil), and I don't want to use chemicals to treat them. With that said, with the first freeze, are the mushrooms likely to die off?
I'm pet-sitting my parents Lab this weekend, so I might try and pickup whatever is visible.
