Well, my summer so far is a qualified success. I've survived! Here are the pics of my SFG so far - first the good news:

Some carrots and beets
Good news/ bad news and questions P1000913

My butternut squash
Good news/ bad news and questions Img_0033

carrots, lettuce leftover, new spinach sprouts, brusset sprouts, and invisible behind that is fall growth of snow peas - blueberry bushes in corner
Good news/ bad news and questions Img_0032

carrots and beets, broccoli, pole beans and sweet million tomatoes,
Good news/ bad news and questions Img_0031

leftover sugar snap peas I'm about to pull out because of powdery mildew. They are still producing, but.... Sad also zucchini that I forgot to be sure was vining (doesn't seem to be), and a tomato I'll have more questions about later. carrots, pansies beets, and lettuce
Good news/ bad news and questions Img_0030

NOW for the bad news and questions:
Am I right to simply pull up the sugar snaps? The powdery mildew crept up on me and is pretty bad.

And one of my tomato vines has what looks to me like maybe two different problems. One lady said blight, but it doesn't seem to match the pictures I find online. It's all on lower leaves, and as you can see they are kind of curled up.

This seems totally different - same plant, actually lower down

Help please????

Are you starting to get colder drier nights say below 50 oF ? If so it could be that that is getting to your tomatoes & peas .

Here in the UK we have moved into Autumn according to the weathermen , so all sorts of plants will be at the natural end of their lives .

I'm only 350 feet above sea level & 11 miles inland but I get salt laden winds some days , which play havoc on some plants . It also gets sharp air frosts long before places five miles away when the wind blows down off a 2,400 foot high range of hills called the Breckon Beacons .

Today .....I stripped off all leaves on my vines so there are just big green toms left on to benefit from the energy given from the root stock. The peas were cleared two weeks ago after snipping off all pods and saving a few I'd left for seed next year.


Same with the peas to me they look more like reached the end of the line due to changing weather and old peas left on the vine than powdery mildew .

Happen someone close to you will give a better reply .

tomato leaf showing signs of chlorosis from magnesium deficiency.

If the peas are still producing, I would keep them.

You grew some nice looking veggies! Very Happy

I didn't show pics of the powdery mildew on the peas - it's pretty obvious and pretty bad... can it infect the zucchini or tomato next door?

It may, but it is so late in the season I think it wont have a huge impact. Powdery mildew loves hot and humid so if the weather is like that, keep pruning off the affected leaves, and the plants will hopefully continue. Also powdery mildew doesn't like water, so in this instance watering the foliage may help.

Epsom salts - someone else will have to tell you how much. Just sprinkle it on the soil around the plants & water in.
