|I have a half barrel planter with tomato plants. Every year, the soil gets a carpet of these fungi growing. I think they might be birds nest fungi. They are small nodules and very woody in texture. Can you identify them and tell me if they are harmful or beneficial to the tomato plant. I live in Utah where the temps are 100+ through much of the summer and the plants need frequent watering.

|Fungi ! Yes ! Don't hurt !
Probably beneficial. Add more nutrients to soil. Till em under.
There from incomplete composting.
Anything i say, could be misrepresented, or wrong.

|These are bird nest fungi. I would leave them alone as they help with composting. Or till them under, whichever you prefer.
Also, from a fellow Utahn!
