Default What is growing in my Chinooks

Just noticed these this morning. Not sure what they are. Anyone have any ideas?

Should I pull them out?

P.S. Sorry for the the crappy iPhone quality pictures

Looks like small mushrooms. I don't think they will harm the hops any.

I was thinking they are mushrooms. I guess I have never seen mushrooms at day 1. If you look closely the top is flat and really thin. It feels like a leaf. That is why I thought it might be some kind of flower or plant instead of a mushroom.

Look like some kind of mushroom to me. I'd probably pluck them and toss them right there they will turn into some food for your hops.

Good call. That is exactly what they look like and feel like in person.

Inky spot mushrooms, , probably from your compost, no issue with your hops at all.

cocktail umbrellas are growing!...I bet after a couple more years and a stronger root system you will be growing Margaritas!
