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

Should I pull them out?

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.

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