Tomato and cucumber leaf-wilt

We are having some leaf wilting and browning-leaves on both our tomato and cucumber plants. Thinking that maybe it is a fungus so we sprayed with an organic fungicide and a pest control (we found a few tomato worms). Just hoping someone can advise us or at least tell us it is ok :) Help please!!! Thank you :D

Definitely looks like some kind of fungal condition, blight or wilt. I'm not expert on diagnosing them, but it rarely matters which, because treatments are basically the same for all of them.

Did your organic fungicide help? What was it you used?

Other options to try are milk solution (half milk, half water, tablespoon of yoghurt with live cultures, let stand at room temp a few hours) or baking soda solution.
