Cucuribits and fungal woes
I am really struggling and the various cures and descriptions have me baffled. Everyone one of my squash (hubbard,butternut,crookneck), pumpkin, cantaloupe, cucumber, has fought the battle of fungi on the leaves all summer.
The butternut is worst and I don't know how long before I can just yank it up...the 7 squash on that are turning tan but have some way to go
The hubbard is least impacted, and really the pumpkin not so bad.
the crookneck-only the old leaves seem to suffer and I can just cut them off.
The cucumber seems to have a different issue with yellow wet spots that are brown, not white underneath.
The watermelon gets brown spots on the ends of the leaves but it does not seem to be a severe issue
I have tried milk. I have tried NEEM, I have tried baking soda - I cut off the most impacted leaves but if I cut of all infected leaves, my plants would have none.
Today is going to be a clear low humidity day so at dawn, I went out and flooded the leaves of all plants with water, let them dry..and sprayed with NEEM+baking soda with a little Dr Bronners solution...flooded the tops and bottoms of every leaf (I first went through and removed as many infected leaves as I felt I could)
I would love advice for making it through this season. I would like to bring my existing fruits to maturity. We could sacrifice the cukes if need be but the rest would be very nice to keep. I am working on a strategy for next year.
