Angular Leaf Spot on Cucumber Plant

Posted by PEACEinSE none (My Page) on

This is my first year gardening and I must say, it's been a wonderful experience. Unfortunately, I think my cucumber plant has Angular Leaf Spot Disease. Does this appear to be correct based on the image? Also, is there anything that can be done to prevent further spreading? Does it make the cukes inedible? I've gotten 10 cukes off the plant so far, most before these horrible spots appeared.

The image looks almost burned out due to extra bright light.

But if I see what I think I see -- damaged areas between the veins -- more likely to be a water shortly. Possibly a very brief shortage that occurred on s hot day a while ago.

Thanks! Here is another image that may provide a better look at what's happening. However, I think I would rather deal with a brief water shortage than Angular Leaf Spot. From what I've been reading it eventually kills the plant!

Thanks again!
