Squash Mold

August 10, 2010

Squash Mold


I’ve grown zucchini and other squashes very successfully for several years now, but this is my first garden in Vancouver.

Unlike the super dry climate of Edmonton, the humidity in the West Coast seems to be a perfect breeding ground for mold.  As a result, squash mold is taking over my zucchini and acorn squashes 😦

While there are tons of chemical solutions, I wanted to try something more natural.  While there does seem to be agreement on a dilute milk or baking soda solution applied by spray, I wanted to try the option a coworker suggested: chamomile tea.

I’m hoping it works.  Update in a few days!
