Patch B , Giant squash, long gourds , field pumpkins and bushel gourds. This patch is about 20 days later then the other one. Things are moving along though, time will tell.
Saturday, July 18 View Page
Came home from work yesterday to find this on the 1719 Daletas . Diagnosed as pythium and Phytophthora. Pulled plant immediately, I will spray rest of plants this evening with TKO and will drench affected area with TKO to help prevent this from spreading to other plants. Thank you Matt for getting back to me so quick. This one spot in my patch holds the most water even after putting in drainage. I will have to work on getting better drainage in this spot in the future.
