Good Afternoon! I've started to pull out some tomatoes and other veggies that can't stand the heat. I found the ground littered with these pods, and the ant are swarming all over them. I "think" they must be a fungus of some sort, but what kind? Any clue?
(I hope I've attached the file correctly!)
Thanks

It looks like you might have some bird's nest fungi in your garden (Nidulariales). Crucibulum laeve (common bird's nest fungus) is a member of this group commonly found on compost, manure and vegetable debris. There are several other species in this group that are similar in appearance.
 
We find this kind of rampant individuality very disturbing. But not this tiny ad:
