This picture shows the downy mildew that has been found in the cucumbers. Once it hits, there is nothing that we can do to prevent it spreading. Cucumbers are the most susceptible to the disease.
This picture shows our cantaloupe plants that are also infected with downy mildew. These plants looked picture perfect a week ago with many blossoms, but now have the same distinctive yellowish lesions on their leaves.
So far downy mildew has not made it to our watermelons!
