I had the same thing happen last year. I believe they said it was called "dog vomit" or something like that. Not actual dog vomit.

It's a type of Slime Mold that is commonly known as 'Dog Vomit Mold'. Latin name of Fuligo septica. Pleasant stuff (note the sarcasm, please).

We get it every spring on the wood-chip surface of our no-till garden. It's never been a problem, just a little unsightly.
The aboriginal people of the world and many other cultures share a common respect for nature and the universe, and all of the life that it holds. We should learn from them!
