Well, as title says.. a few questions about mushrooms and veggies:
I have several raised beds with different vegetables. Raised beds are made from heat treated wood pallets and on top of them I've used wood chips as mulch.
Plants are doing really well but recently I've noticed rather large number of mushrooms (not sure what kind, probably not edible) growing inside beds (so far near wood edges of beds) after this rainy period...
What interests me are those mushrooms beneficial to vegetables or I should try to remove them? Also, could this growth of mushrooms be caused by my wood chips? Was there a way to prevent growth of this 'weed'? (although I don't really mind them growing near vegetables).
Also, should I take some extra care before consuming those vegetables or regular washing with fresh water is enough?
PS: Can mushrooms be considered as weed since they are not plants? ;)
