Giant Puffball

57# puffball- Global Post
It is not uncommon to find a puffball mushroom in our field.  Usually the size of a softball, they occasionally will be soccerball size.  A Canadian gentleman out looking for edibles found one that leaves the others in the dust.

The Global Post reports that Christian Therrien, 62, found this 57 pound puffball in a field.  After taking it home to weigh, he returned it to the field so that its spores can give it a chance to reproduce.

That is what I call catch and release.  Fellow MOMS* members, eat your heart out!
