root maggots - now what?

wazmafazJune 26, 2012

I tried planting cauliflower for the first time; heard about root maggots, thought that might be my problem - sure enough I found a few (but just a few...). Anyway, I'm not devastated by the loss (cauliflower's not that exciting, after all). But, I do want to plant something else there - is that going to be okay? What should I do to the soil to make sure the next plant doesn't get eaten? Or am I good to go as long as I plant something that's not a brassica? Help!

Thanks all!
