I have a huge infestation of some sort. It starts within a few days of planting my plants. Happened to my pumpkins, melons(though not as severe as anything else), bush cukes, and more recently my tomatoes and peppers.
I have sprayed my early plants with a mixture of baking soda, dish soap, a spoon of oil, and warm water. So far it seems to have helped the cukes, melons, & pumpkins. I just noticed the white leaves on the tomatoes yesterday and sprayed them right away(hoping to get the same recovery as the first round). These white areas start out on the edges of my cuke & pumpkin leaves and spread inward then down the stem.
While on the peppers and tomatoes they start more in the middle and spread outward.
It starts as white spots, spreads, then eventually turns the leaves paper thin and transparent, and eventually spreads to the stem(only the outward stems, not the main plant stem) if I don't catch it in time. The ones that arent caught shrivek up and die, then I pintch them off.
So any ideas??
This happened within two days of planting to everything I put in the ground(minus the peas, beans, spinach, and anything tied to a trellis)
its making me sad and crazy! I really hope this stuff survives this!
