Is it a rock? Is it a giant marshmallow? Nope—it’s a mushroom!
Judy Gage, of Courtland Township, lives on Benham, and her husband recently noticed this large white object in the field across the street. “He went over to get it because he thought it was a rock,” she said. “He was going to put it in the yard.” They were both surprised to find out it wasn’t a rock but a mushroom.
The mushroom measured 10-1/2 long, and just short of 10 inches wide. It may be a giant puffball, which is edible when young, but not when it matures.
Be careful when picking any wild mushrooms, and always check to be sure it’s safe to eat.

The banner photo (seen at the top of our front page) was submitted by Judy Gage of Courtland Township. She took the photo on Friday, March 25, at sunset. “The sun was shining on the ice on the trees, making it look like they were on fire,” she said.

It was still pretty cold out Monday, March 13, when two different readers sent the Post pictures of crocuses popping up in their yards.
Mary Lou Fuller, of Solon Township, sent us the photo of the beautiful purple crocuses pushing out of the ground, and Judy Gage, of Courtland Township, sent us the photo of the yellow wild crocus peeking out.
Gage said she’s lived there for 23 years, and she never knows where they will pop up. “Sometimes it’s only a handful, sometimes they’re everywhere. This year they popped up by the wellhouse,” she said.
