Mushroom Equal Soil Life

Spring is here and the weather is warming.  All across the property mushrooms are cropping up.  Mushrooms indicate a good amount of fungi in the soil.  The fungi feed the plants.  Dozens of mushrooms are in the mint and lavender patch that is outside our front door.  For the last two years I have been laying down bark and pine shavings from the chicken coop.  The mushrooms look like Saint George mushrooms and the timing is right for them to appear.  Since, I'm not a mushroom expert I am not going to try to eat them.
