I just redid my garden, and three months into the season, I'm starting to see yellow spots on my leaves. First, it was the cucumbers, and now it has moved over to my zucchini and cantaloupes. 

Can someone give me advice on how to combat this. Or is my garden shot for the season?

Hi Chef George,

I've not had this myself before but I know nutrients can cause yellowing, have you checked into nutirent deficiencies? It sounds like your soil may be low on something?

I came to find out that my PH was a little too high. Also had powdery mildew, which a simple fungicide took care of.

@chef-george Ah interesting how much PH plays a role in plants, i've found culinary grade citric acid is great for PH down, cheap too
