Actinomycetes, fungi responsible for part of the composting process and
the organisms that most people associate with the smell of "soil," form
a white band about a foot from the outside of a well-made compost pile.
They cannot live in the very hot temperatures in the interior, but need
some warmth, which explains their location. Take a sniff--I bet they
smell good. They are beneficial, obviously.
As for the clear blobs on your spinach--I have never seen such a thing.
Why don't you google spinach diseases and spinach insect pests and see
what you come up with?
