Clubroot

Reading bad news in the bath can spoil a hot bubble bath, and make one want to put ones head under and not come up again, well it was not so bad but I was reading about clubroot as my brassica crop has come down with it, right in the middle of the patch, I have read that it may last in the ground for some 20 years and there really does not seem to be a great deal that one can do about it. The Cauliflower have been hit rather badly, I have a half row that I could enter in a show, the other half have gone  down to the fire pit. Next year I really need to make sure that a good amount of lime is added to our clay soil, this they say may help, we already do this but with bad results this year, I may lime the area tomorrow, it may take it down to 15 years……..
