Fungus at Base of Tomato Plant

Fungus at Base of Tomato Plant

There is a weird growth, that has me really creeped out at the base of my tomato plants.


Anyone have information on what this growth might be?

Help is appreciated.

Thanks,
Crystal

Bird's nest fungi NEW

It's hard to tell from the pictures but maybe Bird's Nest fungi? If so it doesn't hurt anything.

What a pain but you can remove them and rake and spray soapy water to prevent over growth....called Bird's Nest Fungus....

Had these grow in our garden soil last year around tomatoes and bell peppers, eventually the whole planter. Now not even weeds grow in there! I cant find any information either.

Did you ever find out what this pod like things were? Did you also have tiny black objects (don"t know if it is a insect or what) all over your tomato plants?
