Alright, here comes the first question from a total noob. Basically I just want to make sure I don't eat or give to my friends anything I shouldn't.

 

I got my first growkit and the shrooms grew incredibly fast. I joyfully went to harvest them, although I wasn't happy to see all this white fluffy stuff inside the container. It looks just like what I would get in a tomato, which I would throw out! Is it mycelium or mold?

They are also all over the base of my mushrooms:

Thats white stuff...thats the good mold. Congrats on first grow. I freaked out a lot my first few times growing. Now that i’ve done it a bunch, and have seen mycelium look different a bunch of times(sometimes cobwebby, sometimes fluffy, sometimes pasty etc...)i find the process to be much more intuitive than anything else, its really cool
