This thing popped up back before Christmas during a warm spell.
Its about the size a head of lettuce. I have no clue.

It looks familiar, a chef I worked for once would boil I believe and eat mushrooms that looked like that they grew in the woods. I found him one when I was dirt-biking once.
Please don't eat it on my word lol.

Hmmm! Maybe that new homestead needs some trees trimmed to get some sunlight there and dry-up some?  A good load of Lime spread around yard to re-fresh or whatever that stuff does? Maybe need a drainage plan and a slop/ditch in back yard?  I like light and sun in a yard, not all cooped up with too many trees.

 

That stuff in pix is called "Kick-Off".     You see it and kick it off the root or ground to die, then walk away!

Nope, this is at the old house right in the front yard. Morning sun until about 1 and yard is relatively dry.

It looks like a brain growing there. As I stated, it's about the size of a small head of lettuce or cabbage, bigger than a softball, close to a soccer ball.
