Q.What Is Happening To My Soil?

Zone 3090, Overijse | JennGrace added on August 24, 2021 | Answered

I noticed very small clumps that looks like chocolate sprinkles a few months ago but didn’t think much of it. Then I was away for one month and it has literally spread throughout the whole strawberry pot and now unfortunately I have powdery mildew. But what is happening to the soil? This is the first time I have even seen this anywhere in my garden, ever.

It looks like the feces of some small animal! You may need to contact your local agricultural agency to find out what it is, unfortunately.
