When I planted my Zucchini I placed a tomato cage over the plant as it grew I trained most of the plant up thru the cage some of it got away and I tied it to the cage using an old towel cut into strips, here's the results It's over 5' tall, it started with powdery mildew this morning and while trimming the bad leaves I noticed the ones I had tied had a bad case of mildew guess I won't do that again, Zucchini being a bush gets a little crowded using a tomato tower next time I will use a larger cage. So far I have gotten 7 good sized Zucchini with more on the way.

Nice, newbie!  Milk spray to the rescue, make sure you get the undersides of the leaves.....

Nice. Mine is only about two feet tall. My third zucchini is about ready, figure in the morning it should ready. I've gotten about 5 yellow crooknecks so far this year and a few more developing. Forgot how much I like squash. Had to trim some bad leaves with what I'm guessing is powdery mildew. What is milk spray?

That was the question I had, and the only reply I received, they were using Powdered milk, I believe it was  one or two tablespoons to a gallon of water, so I started out with 1.5 cups to one gallon of water it seams to be working We got rain last night so I will have to reapply.

I did some research on it. A ratio of one part milk to nine parts water is recommended. Ten to twenty percent milk but no more as it causes other problems. I was wondering about using powdered milk myself and found nothing. I don't drink it so I don't keep fresh milk.

On further reading some use up to 40% milk but the weaker ratio seems to work as well. I just bought a pint bottle and mixed it. Only used about half of the solution so I poured it into a gallon jug, labeled it and put it in the fridge. Don't know why I bothered to label it because I live alone. Going to dose it again in about three days then get on a regular weekly program.
