There are a few problems that have been showing up in gardens lately, specifically cucurbits. This includes cucumber, squash, and melons. Bacterial wilt is showing up sporadically, and I am sure it’s going to hit many of you who have cucurbits in the next few weeks. Bacterial wilt causes plants to wilt slowly over a few days; they freshen up at night and then wilt during the day and eventually wilt and die. The problem is a bacteria that enters the plant and blocks the flow of water and nutrients.
