What is wrong with my pumpkin leaves?

springtogarden(6)August 22, 2013

I have a pumpkin plant that has a few wilted leaves. They did not perk up at 8 after the sun had gone down so I don't think it is the heat. Although, it has been hot for days with few breaks. Is it bacterial wilt? I have not seen any cucumber beetles in the area at all. Can any other bug pass it on? Is it nothing to worry about? Should I just pull this wilted leaves and bury this portion of the vine? The leaves have a slight case of PM but has slowed greatly thanks to the use of potassium bicarbonate. Thanks for all your help!

Check for sassafrass at the base, if it is, it's probably SVB (aka my worst enemy)

Hi Derek, I will look out for that terrible bug. I don't know how to block this nightmare. The squash bug and cucumber bug seem terrible too. It is enough to give me a headache.
