colorado potato beetle eggsWhat I am seeing looks like Colorado Potato Beetle eggs. Have you ever planted potatoes in this soil? Oblong yellow orange eggs. No big deal unless you want to plant potatoes...if you have already planted and harvested potatoes that would be a good indication of this beetle's eggs. Also a good reason to not plant potatoes in the same plot for at least 2 years. Crop rotation makes incredible sense.C. potato beetle eggs
There are other eggs that are similar so this ID is not solid. Also, this beetle prefers to lay their eggs under the leaves of the potato plant not the soil. But if one harvests their potatoes and turns the material back into the soil you will find clumps of these eggs.
Just one idea until you are able to provide more information. Let us know. If this is a correct ID just do not plant potatoes in this soil. That is the main answer. If this is correct. Definitely looks like eggs of some sort but there aren't that many that look like this.

Just for your information, Lady beetle eggs are very similar. What is missing besides your information on what you've grown in this soil is the SCALE or size of these eggs. Please add a nickle or dime or whatever when you take your next pictures.
The size of a quarter makes this clump less likely to be insect eggs. Really need a clearer picture, close up. Is that possible? Look at these birch seeds which is my next idea but these would be too big.Birch seed
My potato starts come from Colorado...right next door. If this clump is almost as large as a quarter...gotta keep looking! Check out the trees, shrubs that grow in the area. We'll be back.
