Hi:

I have quite a few cucumber trees and reccently I noticed that the bottom leaves have some round rust spot of different sizes from penny sizes to silver doller sizes;(maybe they want to grow some doe for me). Some trees seem to have died because of the spots while the more established trees sre still bearing new flowers and fruit and seem to be healthy at the upper leaves. Is this a fumgus or what?
NoLo Jones. Thanks for any help

It's me NoLo again. I noticed that my cucumber leaves are now drying and the plants are dieing. The leaves are getting all dried and brittle and the small cucumbers are not growing. I sprayed soap water on them but that is not helping. Does anyone what seems to be the problem. Thanks.

it may just be that it's the end of the season and too hot.

Hello there, how is every one? I hope the cuke folks have better luck than I have.

It is not the end of season here in NY. Some leaves seem to be ok, but many of the leaves are yellow and they have these brown/rust spots and some of the spots have become holes in the leaves and the outer edges of the leaves have dried and are curling up. I removed all the damaged leaves and used a liquid copper fungicide but the spots keep appearing on other leaves and the same thing is happening to my squash which is on the same bed and they share the same trellis. I did manage to reap some cucumbers but now all the small cukes are dying. HELP!! I am going crazy over this.
