Again, seemingly overnight, the heat and humidity of late summer have combined to pop out the giant fungus in my front yard. My forest critter-hunting neighbor has again requested to partake of it (he gifted me with asparaferns a few years ago). And I've told him it's free for the partaking. But I know he's bluffing... most of my neighbors know better than to eat anything that grew out of this ground. Even I lined my in-ground garden with plastic sheeting.
