Today I noticed this orange/red mushroom-like thing growing in my garden. I’ve never noticed it before. The orange/red portion is above the ground while the egg-like soft portion is below the soil. It smells and looks like it is regenerating. Can you identify it and tell me how I can kill it and stop it from spreading?
