Why do small mushrooms keep growing in my garden?

Just about everyday when I go out to check and water my garden, I find these tan-ish colored mushrooms that grow near my other plants. I am starting to worry that my plants and other herbs will become contaminated & infected with fungi & bacteria from the mushrooms. Please help!!!

The mushrooms spores are in the soil and they generally like warm moist conditions. They are most likely toadstools and are poisonous if consumed, but they wont hurt or contaminate the plants growing in your garden like a mold would. If you are really concerned about it, try talking to someone at your local nursery or gardening center, or contact your local Master Gardener :)

The small mushrooms keep growing in your garden probably because you have soil that is poor in drainage in your garden, which results in the sprouting of mushrooms. Mushrooms like to grow in warm moist soil and if you really want to get rid of them, try improving the drainage of the soil in your garden.
