Q.Plants Have Yellowing…

Zone 97539 | HayleySC added on June 14, 2020 | Answered

I am new to gardening and my cucumbers, squash, and some of the tomatoes have a weird yellow marking on them. My beans look bad too… wondering if it is a disease, or something else???

Yes, unfortunately. Overwatering has left the soil saturated and lacking oxygen, thus, infection has taken hold.

Treating with a fungicide, and solarizing for the rest of the season and through winter until next growing season will help restore the soil. Before solarizing, make sure to test your pH and nutrient content, making note of any deficiencies and swings in pH. Add organic material and compost and then solarize.
