Hi all!

I'm new to this forum, but I am hoping you guys can help me. I started a patio container garden this year to grow vegetables, and soon after I potted my plants (the first round of plants in Vigaro (sp?) soil and everything after in Foxfarm's Ocean Forest), I began to notice small, almost translucent white mushroom-like fungi growing in one of my planters. Now, they're growing in several of my planters. I have attached photos.

My questions:

What are these? I can't find pics like them online.

Are they ok to grow next to my edible plants, or do I have a problem on my hands?

Thanks so much for all your help!

Those are not fungi. They are tiny little mushrooms. Hilarious!
Their spores came in the growing medium you bought and they are harmless, but you can remove them if you like. expect more though.
Thus, from the war of nature, from famine and death, the most exalted object which we are capable of conceiving, namely, the production of the higher animals, directly follows. There is grandeur in this view of life, with its several powers, having been originally breathed into a few forms or into one; and that, whilst this planet has gone cycling on according to the fixed law of gravity, from so simple a beginning endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been, and are being, evolved.
-Charles Darwin-
