Now Two Cucumbers Have Spots: Vegetable MD Online
First off here is a great link: Vegetable MD Online
The link will take you to the cucumbers. Several leaves, closest to the ground, have yellow spots. Probably a leaf spot for cucumbers. 2 plants out of 12 or so. So that means time to spray.
I can't remember but I think I have 33ish tomatoes in. I only had to remove 1 because of leaf spot. The others are all treated and doing well. We are now approaching July and that is time for Early Blight. I sprayed my cukes and tomatoes again this morning.
The garden is doing well.
You can plant tomatoes still. I actually have seedling coming up in trays. They are free for the immediate neighbors. Just email me. It is green bean time, if they aren't in.
I ordered heirloom bean seeds and they just arrived. They will go in cups to get started and I'll put them in the garden in 2 weeks or so.
TIP: Cucumber and Squash leaves are sometimes less hardy then Tomato leaves.They burn easier (sometimes) when sprayed. If you are using a sulfur spray, check it out on a few cuke, zuke, and squash leaves first. You need to spray and wait 24 - 48 hours to look for damage.
