I just noticed the first few spots of PM 3 days ago, I removed the few effected leaves and sprayed with a baking soda solution. 1 tsp baking soda, 1 tsp olive oil, 1 quart H2O. Sprayed tops and under all leaves of my 10 squash plants. We'll see how it goes. Shocked

I'm using a product called Mildew Cure from Johnny's Seeds:
http://www.johnnyseeds.com/p-6954-mildew-cure-og-pt-.aspx

You do need to spray every 7 days (or after rains) but it is organic. And the effect is instant! We do have a gallon sized garden sprayer, which makes it much easier to get all the leaves, top and bottom. So far...only the spaghetti squash plant has powdery mildew. No signs of it on the buttercup, zucchini or yellow squash.

I really thought that having my winter squash up on trellises would help prevent PM, but apparently if the conditions are right it will find you!! If my winter squash make it to maturity it will definitely be because DH and I worked hard to keep the plants alive. Between the vine borers and mildew now, it's a constant battle!!

I am seeing individual leaves just plain dying here and there. Not sure what is up, though I suspect insects. Time to spray and fertilize again....
