That’s some puffball

Ross Harvey holds the largest of four puffballs found on his property, just west of Red Deer, Tuesday. The mushroom had a circumference of 137 cm. (54 in.), and weighted a total of 21 lb. Harvey had never seen puffballs reach this size and attributes their growth to the damp weather which is ideal for growing the fungus.
