tomato, cucumber, and zucchini problems

Post  jeeperchk on 7/13/2014, 12:03 am

Hi everyone,
Any help identifying what's going on with my veggies would be appreciated. We've had a TON of rain in middle TN lately, so some of this may be related to that. The zucchini's are crinkly and brown on the edges, the leaves look dry. The tomato plant looked great until this morning and within the day a bunch of leaves have turned a shiny brown down the middle and now wrinkling. Finally, the cucumber plants had powdery mildew and I sprayed with a 10% milk solution two weeks ago followed by a baking soda/dishsoap solution last week. The powdery mildew is gone, but now it's getting these white patches.

thanks for any advice on salvaging the plants.

Oof, that black or dark brown stuff on the leaves in your second picture looks a lot like late blight. Are any of the stems affected, or just the leaves?

I've seen white spots on leaves just like your 3rd picture. Did you have gusty, windy conditions with all the rain you mentioned?  I think it's cosmetic damage from the stress of being blown about. In my case it didn't get any worse. 
Just my personal observation.  What a Face
