dousing the shelf

the top two photos are of the black sludge the rotting potato from the previous post left on the shelf in the basement and the floor beneath of the sanitizing methods fro clean up after blackleg rot is to pour hydrogen peroxide on the affected area to kill the bacteria ( dickey dianthicola ) that causes it so i did...and you can see how the hydrogen peroxide reacted with ( and, hopefully, killed ) the bacteria...there will be further dousing until there is no's hoping the tubers in the ground already are not infected.
