Woke up this am with hundreds of mushroom in bed that I will plant tomatoes and peppers. What can I do to get rid of them. Can I still plant there?

Just rake them off and yes, you can still plant there. Shrooms in soil is NBD!!

Ha! Did you use mushroom compost? What did you use to create this bed, and when?

Just curious (nosey), gardengal is right....the mushrooms are nothing to worry about. That's not saying that they are edible, however!

rhizo I didn't do a thing...I don' think.
I did put down a grass blocker sheet and had mulch/soil brought in and placed on top of it over the winter. But, I did this for 2 other sites in the back yard and none of them have the 'hrooms.

Gardenga148. So, I just rake them off and plant my tomatoes? Do I have to pull them up from the root or just rake over them. Aren't they a fungus. That's not a bad thing in the garden? I don't think I would eat them either

The mushroom you see ain't nothing. It's the spore body of the bigger fungus that's in the soil, something you'd be like to never notice, and is something one might call a good sign of a live soil.

Go ahead and eat one, but let your next of kin have your password here so we can hear how it all turned out. Inquiring minds wanna know!

Fungi are an essential part of a healthy soil. You just don't normally see the fruit in large quantities.
