Q. How do I control powdery mildew on my squash plants?

I have several varieties of squash growing in the garden and all of a sudden I am getting white powdery spots on the leaves and stems of my plants. The flowers seem to be falling off because of it. I don’t want to use chemicals, is there a natural way to get rid of it?

Prevention is the best route as well as early intervention when it does sneak up on you. There are organic as well as chemical controls but they work best before the infection has gone rampant.
