sucks . There is apparently no cure , just yank 'em and toss 'em in the fire
. Lost a zuke , a cuke , and maybe another cucumber and one of my straight
neck squashes .
And my tomatoes have aphids . Ain't life grand ?
I'm generally lucky with aphids. I guess I have enough bug eaters
around. However my tomatoes have leaf spot, and it took me at least
a week longer than it should have to realize that. I'm hoping that
they get enough new growth to make up for the doomed leaves.
"Please understand that we are considerably less interested
I managed to put somewhat of a hurt on the aphids . I used 10 tsp of a mix
that consisted of 1 bar ivory dissolved in 1 qt water with a couple of
teaspoons of cayenne pepper steeped in hot water . Helped a lot , but
anywhere I missed soaking the underside of the leaves there are still a few
. The root rot has apparently died out , at least for now . I ended up
losing 2 cucumbers , 1 zucchini and an acorn squash .
