I'm not sure on which forum to paste this, so I'm jumping in with hopes of someone being able to answer my questions.
I planted canteloupe this year and the vines looked beautiful until about a week ago. We got a lot of rain during the first two weeks of July, but during the last two weeks and the first of August, we've gone back to drought status.
The vines were green, but now they are turning yellow and look as though they have some kind of fungus on the leaves. They have a white-ish color on them. Since we are having a drought, could it still be a mold or fungus? Is it just time for the vines to be playing out, thus resulting in the yellowing of the leaves?
The fruit, itself, is smaller than I expected, and some of the ones that ripen have a split in them.
What am I doing wrong, and what is causing this? Any help will be greatly appreciated.
