It looks like a puff ball and if it is, yes they're edible

Thats surely a puffball. Will be solid all throughout, and yes, edible. BTW... the Elm has nothing to do with it.
they'll grow about anywhere.

Thanks guys! So we have confirmed a puffball? I don't want to make my family sick or WORSE!!! I cut it in half last night after some research and it is solid white all the way through. That confirms puffball, correct?

Should I expect to see more in the area? Thanks for helping a newbie!

As long as it's solid white it's good to eat. With puffballs it tough to say, others may pop up here and there. Usually the'll come up next year in the same area. I had one yesterday, cut it up and sauteed it in butter, good eating.

Just don't try to eat them in the stage they get their moniker.... PUFF. Won't be a very good eat.
What you got there is fine.

I'm hoping to find more in the area. I'm new to shroomin and glad I finally found one we can actually eat!
