The Q&A Archives: Bread crumbs?

Question: I live in Zone 5, and I am growing herbs and vegetables in containers on my south-facing deck. We have had a very wet spring with alternating cold and hot weather. A few days ago, I began to notice what looks like bread crumbs in the soil in my containers. It is in all the containers - cucumber, tomato, and basil. What is this? Is it bad for my plants? No damage yet.
