Gardening update! @alice_swaggen just sent me some progress on my #tomatillos and #kabocha #pumpkins. We've beenhaving a problem with the fruit turning yellow and rotting on the vine, but this big boi looks like he might hang around!
The tomatillo fruit are finally closing back up their paper lanterns to mature; getting excited now!
Does anyone have experience using neem oil as a fungicide?
I made up a solution yesterday (quarter teaspoon neem oil, few drops washing up liquid in about 500ml water) and tested it on this pumpkin leaf. These pictures are taken a day apart, I don’t know how to tell if the progressive yellowing is damage from the neem oil or just because it was yellowing anyway?
