Citrus and Fungus
I had to remove all the broccoli plants and residue from the garden, as a nasty fungus was rotting the stems. See the rotting gray area on the stem, and the white fluffy dots of fungal fruiting bodies emerging? That disease easily could overwinter in any stem, leaf it other tissues left on the soil, so I cleaned it out completely (I hope). I harvested a dozen side shoots first, so nothing was lost.
