    Something dribbled or dropped there and you have a mold growing is my first guess. I think it will probably last as long as the thing it is growing on...but if you want to be safe just take a shovel and shovel it out of the garden.

    It came up after a cool snap and some rain. It's not really spreading, and I haven't seen anything on the plants.

    Looks like a white slime mold... Google "Slime mold" - they are fairly harmless. Personally, I'd shovel the affected area into the woods.

    Has anyone here ever planted granadillas/passion fruit from seeds? Our plant is pretty huge and has yellow fruit. I washed and dried the seeds of two fruit. Half of the seeds I've soaked in warm water over night and planted the seeds in pots (12 seeds/pot), the other half I put into wet paper towels. I also cut 4 fruit in half and buried them just like that in the garden. I also bought some purple granadillas to try and plant their seeds as well. Has anyone had any experience with this?
