Ever since we have had a few hot, rainy days (I'm in middle GA), I've noticed this slime mold on some of my vegetable plants. In most cases it has been on the plants themselves, but it was also on the side of one container (you can see in the pictures). I am wondering if it is still safe to eat the vegetables that are grown on the plants that have the brown fungus on them, as long as the fungus is not on the vegetables themselves. I worry mostly about my children eating the vegetables. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Its not going to hurt anything its just some little mushroom living off the organic matter.
NOT A EXPERT! Just a grow worm! I never met a plant I didn’t love.✌
