Something got my tomatoes. I had a few plants in the front of the garden separate from most of my roma and beefstake toward the back of the garden and I notice dark spots on the plant itself and the leaves start to yellow all of a sudden last week.

We had reports of blight spreading, so I pulled those. It seemed only a few tomatoes were affected on the plant though, most seemed ok, no dark spots. Now I'm having an issue with powdery white "mold?" on a few zuchinni plants and it seems that it's spreading to my pumpkins. I've been trying various mold remedies from all over - one was diluted milk, the other was chamomile tea and garlic. Neither seem to be helping anything. Is it too late for any home remedies? Our weather is terrible. It's COLD and damp. I just have no hope for what's left of my garden this year

I think your going to have to get a fungicide hun. It's all I can find at the moment. I did however read that baking soda and water will do the trick, changes the PH level supposedly. You're going to have to make a choice. Get a chemical from a shop OR try other organic ideas.

Here is a link to help you out. Fungicide - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (you have to scroll down a bit)

I do know that tea tree oil works on human fungus. Best of luck hun, let me know how it goes
