Bizarre mossy green fungus THINGS on lawn
I moved into a house in a rural part of north eastern Ontario last August. The terrain is very rocky/sandy so the lawn is mostly weeds, it's too dry for grass. Anyhow, the "lawn" was scattered with crunchy black curled strands that I initially thought were dried moss or lichens. But then it rained, and these THINGS absorbed water and swelled into dark slimey green bud-like items resembling large capers, very slippery if you step on them. Then they'd dry up until the next rain.
I've never seen anything remotely like this. Does anyone have an idea what these things might be?
