Root Knot

Out of one of my other beds this tomato is showing the first signs of nematode problems.

See those clumps on the roots? Root knot nematodes. Happens when you don't rotate. What to do? The soft answer is to plant other stuff for a couple of years. The serious answer - run a crop of marigold there all year then dig the green back in. Man, that's a big hit.
I'll keep you informed.
