HELP! What is this Yukky Stuff?

Post  countrynaturals on 6/3/2016, 11:10 am

Yesterday I saw some of this in my sfg. It looked like an animal had thrown up. I washed it away, which was probably a really bad idea, because it's back again this morning, even bigger. It even swallowed up one of my little strawberry plants. What in the world is it and how do I get rid of it?

There was a thread on it but I don't know the name of the thread.  Here's a photo of some I found on 5-19-16.

It's in the visitors thread...

I get it often. Just leave it alone and it will disappear after a few days.

I think it is called dog vomit. It is a fungus and you can read about it in the Back to Eden thread.

It is no problem, just horrible looking.  I had it the first year I laid wood chips and it really is revolting.  Since there has been no sign of it. It is part of Nature's Soil Web.
