Squash plant, base of leaf stems where they join main plant stem.

General Information:
My yellow straight neck squash plant has been healthy and producing. Today when I examined my garden this plant was wilted and curled with these huge ugly fungus growths all over the base of the plant. I do not know what this is or where it came from, I planted this garden 8 weeks ago and have had no problems.


This plant disease was found in these places:
In my vegetable garden in North Texas

I discovered that this was just a slime mold that had formed on one of my squash plants after it was infested by Vine Borers.

Hi DRaley, Do you have any larger images? Could you get a closeup of the fungus?
Thanks!
