I have found mushrooms in several of my herb pots. These mushrooms appeared at different times and in soil from different sources, but were all the same (as in, the same type of mushroom). I assume, therefore, that their spores come with the wind in some manner or another.
Since I generally cook with these herbs I'm worried - can I continue using herbs from mushroom-ridden pots? So far I haven't, but they're so abundant this is becoming a significant problem.
The attached pictures are of the largest of the mushrooms I had, which appeared near a sage plant:
Just another question: Is there a way of getting rid of these mushrooms without killing the plant near which they grow?
Thanks a lot,
