Looks like dying cucumbers to me, just like mine. Interesting to note that your are in CT & we're having the same problem. I was told it was a soil mineral deficiency. Mine are not in MM, are yours?

PS Are my eyeballs in wrong or are those photos upside down? Laughing

I was told to feed, which I did with compost, and water with Epsom salt. I did that and they are still alive & producing, which is amazing consider how they look. That was a couple weeks ago.

Are yours producing?

I wonder if we're all using the same cuc seed. There must be a type of cuc seed that is resistant to all that.

Help anyone?

Yah, that was in my orginal post. That's what I think it is. It's a fungus, and you can make a home made antifungicde with 1 tablespoon, 1/2 teaspoon dish soap and 1 gallon of water. But you have to catch it early from what I've read.
