I have come to the conclusion that anything that prevents the soil from 
splashing up onto the leaves during rainfall can help reduce leaf spot in my 
garden. That is,  "companion plants," aka weeds.  It doesn't keep me from attempting 
to a have a weed-free garden, however, because the weeds can also promote rot 
due to lack of air circulation around the rhizomes.  Now I just need to 
figure out a way to have both conditions....no soil splash, but good air
