Didja put a compost all around the plants ?

Some composts have a 'water retaining gel',

and it would show up after being soaked with rain,etc.

See the package label (if you still have it)

You're on the right track. Best thing to do is burn the house down, avoid standing in the smoke. Allow at least 30 years before re-building on the site. Other than that, it's not much to worry about.
