Question

Aya

Hi, 

I am wondering what you think. It seems like I was just too late in harvesting? 

This morning they looked fine. Color was not off. When I got home I saw this black stuff. Was I just too late or is there something wrong?

Thank you for helping out.

Kind regards,
Aya

They just dropped their spores, everything is perfectly fine.

It is odd that the largest one has spores on top of it though, were these underneath other mushrooms?

Yep just spores, no worries at all. Although I do try to pick them before that point to avoid the mess. Generally, if I can and have time, I pick them either right before or right after the veil breaks. Doesn't always work in my favor - I had some spew all over the place here recently with the holidays. 

I've seen the tallest fruit have spores on its cap before. Really not sure how that happens but it is indeed weird. I can only imagine a draft of air does it.
