    So I harvested my first flush yesterday and ate some too:), but the thick base of the mushrooms were fluffy ( not from contamination but the right kind of fluffy) but I didn't kwow wether I could eat it so I cut it off. So is the fluffy stuff safe to eat?

    Thanks

    Fuzzy feet?
    Yep. Its just mycelium. Usually caused by lask of fresh air but sometimes certain specimens they do that no matter what. Either way, edible
