I think I had a bit of it beginning on the Gilberties and I lopped off the offending foliage and put it in the burn pile.

This looks like a useful link! Tomato Disease ID

The first and last photo look like it from the photos I've seen, the middle one, looks like a lot of my older cucumber leaves. I just take them off the vine when they start looking ill like that, but the vines are still producing healthy looking fruit.. Not exactly sure what it is going on, but the leaves go to the burn pile.

Maybe it is just me but I have tried that site before and found it more
confusing than helpful. My cucs are looking just like the ones in chocopops photos. My potatoes and beans have similar looking leaves. So there is nothing we can do this year but what do you do to prevent this next year?

mosaic virus....

Post  trustinhart on 8/22/2010, 10:32 pm

I recently read an article on tomato culture. The article stated not to handle tomatos plants or vining plants while or after smoking without washing your hands. Evidently the tobacco mosaic virus is related and can be transmitted to these other veggies.

Could also be powdery mildew. Look for signs of it on the underside of the leaves.

Here's a good guide: http://vegetablemdonline.ppath.cornell.edu/DiagnosticKeys/CucurLeaf/CucLeafKey.html#Downy

Yes, I have read that too. but I haven't smoked since 1969 and I KNOW I have washed my hands since then.

I've got something going on with just some of my rampicante leaves that looks like the bottom picture. On some leaves there is more yellow on one side of the leaf than others. And they can be directly adjacent to leaves that look just fine? The plant itself doesn't seem troubled.... it is still sending out new branches and I just firmly told it that it was NOT allowed to eat the tomatillo plants!
