Hi folks. I hope some knowledgeable people can help me diagnose some sick plants. First, I have some runner beans that are showing some yellowing and dying back of a few lower leaves. Some upper leaves are curling. These beans are Blau Hildas, so they have a purplish color anyway.

I also have some cucumbers that are taking a fair amount of damage on their leaves, as well as on the fruit. I’m not sure if it’s bacterial or fungal. We do have Striped and spotted cucumber beetles, as well as the shield-shaped squash bugs. I’ve been hand licking each day, which seems to be keeping the numbers under control. I broke off a large leaf stem to see if there was the characteristic milkiness of bacteria, and I didn’t see it.

Thanks!
Daniel
