Pumpkin Problems

So many weeds, squash bugs are out, vine borers are out… So, apparently, a weekly neem application isn’t enough.

Vine borers are in.

I spent over an hour and a half weeding one plot… It is finally dry enough without sinking.

But no matter what I do, the airborne fungi is spreading, as the cool weather encourages it. Neem discouraged it a bit, but still couldn’t stop it.

Downey mildew is everywhere

I am really hoping that I have some sort of crops for programming in October! Weed pressure is absorbing some of the excess moisture, but also taking some of the nutrients. In a lose lose situation right now.

Denitrification.... Nutrients are there, but it is too wet.
