Anyone any idea of what this is growing on my lawn. It's appeared..say....over the last few weeks. To be honest I haven't a clue. I originally thought it might be some discharge from the wild rabbits about but there's no 'green grass' colour to suggest it is, so I'm thinking maybe some weird fungus.

Big question is....is there any money to be made from it?

Looks like cat diarrhoea to me. What does it taste like?

Yeugh! I've never actually seen a slime mould for real. Not sure I'd want to! If that was in my garden id be blaming Alfie, our new dog!
