2012 Veg Garden Powdery Mildew

About a week after laying down straw the winter squash and volunteer crooked necks developed this hideous case of powdery mildew. It has spread across the entire 15x8ft patch. The soaker hose runs under the plants and straw. I suspect this, combined with the sheer mass of leaves from the volunteers that blocks the light, has created the perfect moist condition for the nasty mildew. We of course went straight to the garden store to pick up an organic solution. However it turns out even organic products have precautionary labels. In this case, don't let it drain into stormwater runoff, don't inhale, wear long sleeves, 72 hours before harvest... So, we'll be searching the books for a more user friendly solution. If you have any wisdom on the subject feel free to let me know.

The 380,000-plus-word database presented here allows, for the first time, the Iraq-related public pronouncements of top Bush administration officials to be tracked on a day-by-day basis against their private assessments and the actual “ground truth” as it is now known. Throughout the database, passages containing false statements by the top Bush administration officials are highlighted in yellow. The 935 false statements in the database may also be accessed by selecting the “False Statements” option from the “Subject” pull-down menu and may be displayed within selected date ranges using the selection tool below. Searches may also be limited by person or subject, or both, by using the appropriate selections from the pull-down menus.
