Post  buttaflie143 on 5/3/2011, 5:36 pm

There appears to be something very wrong with my zucchini and cucumbers...please take a look and tell me what you think.

When you water these plants ate you putting water at the base of the plant or are you showering the whole plant w/ water?

Right after I planted, we got some torrential rains, but I have only been watering at the base of the plant with a pitcher.

So, it looks like you have some healthy foliage growing there, if it was my plant I would pinch off the bad looking older leaves and discard them. The new foliage you may want to watch to see if you have any more problems.

But what do you think is the culprit...too much water...downy mildew?

Could be something to do with all the rain. I had some problems with powdery mildew on my miniature rosebushes in FL. I read some stuff, and skeptically sprinkled them and the soil they were in with ordinary yellow cornmeal. It worked. The mildew disappeared, and the rosebushes thanked me for it.

I reapplied once more that year, when it tried to come back. Again, it disappeared.

Hey, plain yellow cornmeal. Can't hurt anything, right? What a Face

Hmmm. Definitely can't hurt so I will certainly do some more research on it. Thanks.
