Q.What Is This Foamy White Stuff In My Raised Veggie Garden?

Please look at uploaded picture. This white foamy stuff appeared over night in my raised veggie bed. It’s about 3″ in size. I did flush out worm tower with water yesterday. If it is organic I will leave it. If it’s going to damage my veggies I will remove. Thanks, Byron

It is something known as a "Slime Mold", though it isn't a mold at all.

This beneficial creature is best left to kill off the bad microbes in your lawn. That is part of their diet- Bad microbes. Though it is unsightly, it is doing a good deed.
