Looks great. Are they fenced? Deer have really started hitting my turnip and radish tops last several days.

No fencing. there are some beans mixed in there that I planted in early June and then over seeded the brassicas in late July. They are keeping the beans eaten down to about 6", but my deer won't hit the brassicas until after a hard frost.

Oh yeah, Do you run a deer farm?

Man I'm distraught after yesterday. Almost all of my brassicas appear to have downy mildew. Not sure if it was the heavy dew we've had from cool nights or what. Big sections dead.

Cycles of moist evenings and hot days are prime for fungal pathogenic infections, especially with young seedlings.

I’m hopeful for mine, I broadcasted my brassicas into standing soybeans and the beans are turning FAST. I’m starting to get some sunlight through the canopy and hoping I timed the seeding just right. I may yet overseed next weekend to make sure I get a second flush if my first seeding is a partial failure. It should be a honey hole of a spot, very hopeful.

So the question is what the hell do you do with them so they don't infect the next crop or reseed? I've heard it stays in the soil for quite some time

fungal pathogens have varied viability over time in the soil. Some like verticilium and fusarium are very long lived and persistent (why people rotate where they plant tomatoes).
Some favor certain soils, some need specific environmental (moisture, temperature, humidity) to thrive etc. In a production situation, a fungicide would be applied in one form or another. Sometimes the damage reaches a threshold where treatment is warranted, sometimes not.
There are certain beneficial fungal relationships with plants also like mycorizhal symbiosis.

Soil physical chemistry and biology can be complicated and there isnt a one size fits all description or recommendation.

Its like bad luck.. just floats around.

Dry as a popcorn fart here. Took the fence off my beans and they will be fine but I might just nuke everything else and go with wheat if we don't get anything out of the 40% chance they're calling for tonight.
just started raining here, we will hunt the plot tomorrow and suspect I will broadcast wheat later this week! Hopefully a 3.5 or older walks in tomorrow, I like Simon's odds!
