Ok this is starting to affect my self esteem here!!!!! 100% of what I planted, all 7 veggies - straightneck squash, cucumbers, sugar snap peas, sweet potatoes, tomatoes, green pepper, and lettuce - are having problems. Any help would be appreciated!!!!
cucumber leaves have white spots that don't rub off, so I wonder if it's not mildew? I planted them in 2 different locations. One has evidence of aphids, the other does not. But both have the spots, both have chewed spots.
sweet potato leaves have holes.
pea leaves start out with white spots and eventually 80% of the leaf is white, in a sort of swirled pattern.
tomato leaves have spots all over, and not producing. 4' tall and only one flower.
lettuce brown on the edges and wilting
and finally, green pepper leaves are yellowing. plant is not growing, though there are a few sickly looking flowers.
Soil - I used a 10-10-10 fertilizer, 2 applications, 2 months apart. I added some humus about 2 weeks ago.
Ants - I keep reading contradicting things about ants. Some say they're not a problem, some say they are. All I know is we have a lot of them.
Watering - every 1-2 days in the evening.
Moles - having a big mole problem. could they be causing all the plants to die by chewing the roots? I'm sure they aren't helping matters, but with the amount of chewed spots / holes, they can't be the only problem.
