Woke up to this in my vegetable garden, what could it be?

I have overcrowded my vegetable garden as a first time over zealous gardener which I built 45 days ago. All of my zucchinis, squash, peppers and tomatoes plants are piling over each other so I weeded through some of them, shy to take out too much out of my 100 sq ft space and woke up for the first time to this yellow foam covering the dirt under my zucchini plant and crawling up it’s stem. I scooped it up and hopefully got it all.

Is this a fungus? Is my vege garden doomed? Should I avoid eating any of my veges? or pull any plants out that may have this under or on it?

ugh help?
