Frog or alien eggs?? (pictures!)

soo.. .anyone who can see my avatar can tell i've got a thing for frogs, my first basil plant had a frog invade the small coffee can and live in it. i dubbed him Hopper. Since then, hopper has decided to leave, but i've since let a basil plant live in the pot that used to be his. now i've got these strange greenish, translucent egg like spheres scattered in the soil. are aliens about to be an issue in my bucket garden? or did hopper leave his/her progeny behind?

pictures might help :

They are little balls of slow release fertilizer in the potting soil

I can settle this and there is considerable expertise in my opinion. Those, smaxey, my new pal, are road runner eggs. Hang on to your hat. Your life is about to get really exciting. They are fast, not aliens. I mean really fast. And they're smart and tricky.
