ALIENS!

So I’m going through the roses pulling up some grass and run into these things. I’m like WFT! Never seen anything like that before. I get closer and discover it must be Aliens! They must live underground and breath with their penises  :D

According to the net it’s called stinkhorn. This species appropriately named Phallus ravenelii http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phallus_ravenelii

Just great! Now even the ground has a bigger penis than me  :D

We cut down some large trees about 6-7 years ago. For the past 3-4 years we’ve had all kinds of fungi growing in the yard being nourished by those rotting roots in the ground I suppose. Nothing good yet though  ;)

Seems to be a few “eggs” around that these things emerge from. May document them growing.

The eggs are supposed to be edible with a mild flavor.
