Garden Gleanings from Weed'em & Reap: Squash plants dyingPosted Wednesday, February 24, 2010, at 12:27 PM

Turns out there are more blights, spots, wilts, mildews etc that can affect a squash plant than I ever thought. However, I found an excellent resource from Cornell University. Why excellent? Because it has a lot of picture examples of what they are talking about.
After you find a leaf that looks "sort of" like what you have, click on the particular cucurbit in your garden and you may see more examples, close-ups, etc.
See if this helps narrow in on the culprit. If it does, we can then pursue the solution.
