Speaking of rot, I decided to pull the clover out of the raised beds 
in which I grow the few tall bearded I have. Among a few other, 
Breakers had rotted. We need to have a cooperative reciprocal 
recurrent selection program for tb's, if they are to survive, and 
cross some hardiness in from older varieties. I once planned such a 
program as a potential grad project, but it didn't come about. If 
anyone's interested, I'd be glad to discuss this. If each of, say, 10 
people is willing to contribute some effort towards this each year, 
tb's may be made into a more desirable perennial plant, as they used 
to be. I suspect there has been too much inbreeding, but that's just 
a hypothesis. What would be nice would be to sponser a molecular 
marker screen of tb germplasm, and assess the genetic variability 
quantitatively. This is the kind of thing I used to do in corn. The 
software is easy to get.
