Bad Things Happening in my Garden

 Yikes! I usually share pictures of beautiful things in my garden, but here are two ugly things that have shown up recently. Above is a leaf spot problem on a cucumber plant. I suspect it's anthracnose. Below, powdery mildew on pumpkin leaves. Treatments are available for both. I won't treat the cucumber plant, though. I will pull it up and discard it. The pumpkin plant has already produced two giant fruits, so I'll clip off the infected leaves and treat the other leaves with a preventative containing sulfur (stinky).
