Sick cukes?

Battalina(6b)June 7, 2012

Can anyone tell me what's wrong with my cukes? I'm assuming it's caused by all the rain (it rained every day for almost three weeks). Should I spray them with my organic fungicide?

It looks a bit like scab. I'm no expert on diseases though-can't imagine a bit of neem spray or an organic skim milk/water mix would hurt though...

Thank you Stellabee! I will try the skim milk and water mix. I really hope it works. It has finally stopped raining and there is no rain in the forecast for another week so I hope this will help the cukes recover.

Looks like angular leaf spot, or a leaf spot of some kind. It's a type of fungus so the milk spray should help.
