My potted herbs (Chives, Mint, Thyme, and Parsley) are sprouting mushrooms. They are not the yellow mushrooms that I keep reading about, but rather small brown mushrooms, which die usually the same day as sprouting, but no longer than the next day. I've read the how-tos of getting rid (or trying to) of them, but I'm curious about whether or not they are damaging to my herbs. What do you think?

They are not damaging to the plants. It is a sign that they soil is organic rich and that the plants are getting enough water but not too much. They may be lacking in light though, so if the herbs look leggy, I would move them somewhere brighter.
