    We are heading down the road about 55 mph when my husband brakes. I asked him what's going on and he says he thinks he saw a mushroom...... I'm thinking "yeah, right"! [​IMG]


    It was growing along side a paved road, just 18 inches into the grass.
    Weighs 1 pound.

    That is massive. Since it is that big, I can see why he could see it.

    I bet you could make a real hearty cream of mushroom soup with it.
