Don't!!! My friend told me last week that she found a little mushroom in her wood that looked like brains, she picked it, pulled it apart , and tossed it aside. She can't remember where she found it

Ah, but the brain look alike may be Gyromitra esculenta, which may be poisenous.

My garden. The first one I found was just in some rough old chalky soil I had been digging out a few months before. Others have appeared where I've mulched the garden with cheap bark chips. I found the largest one out the front of a local building site again where they'd mulched with bark chips a few months before.

I have looked in woodland around edges of old fires etc but never found any that way.

I was referring to where I've found them in the past. I'll mention it if I find any this year, not seen any yet.
