I've got a sheet mulched bed awaiting my spring vegetable plantings in my backyard. Over the last 2-3 days I've noticed some large colonies of pink and green things that look like tiny eggs but I can't find anything about them anywhere. Wondering if they're something I should be concerned about or if I should leave em be. I'm in the Seattle wa area, if that helps.
Hopefully my pictures attach
They could be good, they could be bad. It's so difficult to say. To me, they look like frog and lizard eggs - But, they may not be. Perhaps someone else can chime in.
If you are really curious, how about taking some inside and making a little hatchery. Grab some of the surrounding mulch and as many eggs as you can, put them in a transparent container with a screen lid (maybe a large jar with mosquito netting affixed with an elastic). They should hatch out faster in the warmth of inside.
The top one, especially, looks like some kind of fungus...
I see it now, especially the top one. If the 'spheres' are indented in one side, it could be one of the jelly mushrooms (like the family you find witches butter in). The more I look at it, the more the top one reminds me of baby witches butter, only I've ever seen it on logs not mulch.
Then again, this slime mold is interesting too. I'm off to learn more about it. Thanks for the link.
