Burning in the garden

gardencraze(9b Groveland FL.)April 26, 2012

I just dicovered this, all of my vegies seem to be burning in a wierd way.Beans,peppers,basil,zukini,herbs all seem to have leaves that look like someone scorched the edges and they kinda turn gray.

I don't fertilize w/chems I use cow manure,horse manure or mushroom compost.

everything looked just great till a few days ago and today it was really bad.

I hope I don't loose it all after all that hard work. All of my plants are in bloom and fruiting

Any help would be greatly appreciated.Sorry I don't have pics

Even cow manure and horse mature can burn plants if it's not dried enough or so I was told.

Carmen, I am very sorry about your garden. If after proper sanitation and an organic schedule of organic fungicides does not help, you can try to contact the Extension Service to see if they know the cause and they can help, hope that your garden gets better...

More of a question than answer but...

Could it be that the couple mornings that it dropped into the 40Fs combined with the low humidity high winds stressed them just a little?

I think it could be the wind too. My tomatoes developed purple/blackish tints to the leaves from the wind.

def dryness and wind, coupled with the heat. The leaves are wilting much quicker as the recent wings have been sucking up the moisture.

Is it happening mostly on the bottom sets of leaves?
