This time of year when the rains come and it may get more humid in your area, the powdery mildew will set in on cucumbers, squash, pumpkins and anything with a broad and kind of hairy leaf. This spray won’t repair damage that has already been done, but it will stop the mildew in it’s tracks and stop continued damage to other, newer parts of the plant.
The recipe is simple:
1 quart of water
1 1/2 tablespoons baking soda
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
2 tablespoons liquid dish soap.
Mix it all up in a big jar and pour into a spray bottle. This should be sprayed during a time of the day that is not to hot and not ever in the direct sunlight of mid day. If you are able to, spray this on a slightly overcast day so you will avoid any burning to your plants.
Spray once a week to avoid another set in of the powdery mildew. This is a great way to deal with a garden problem in a simple and organic way instead of resorting to harsh chemical sprays that can be expensive and in the end even more damaging to the soil and ground water in the end.
I hope that this is helpful for you and I hope you learned something!
I hope you give this homemade fungicide spray a try and I hope you love it!
