I was wandering through my garden searching for ripe fruit, pulling the occasional weed, tucking errant tomato vines in their cages, when I noticed that my birdhouse gourds have some sort of mildew. Oh poopie. On further inspection I noticed that the tomatillo plant next to it has this mildew also. I try to be organic and I don’t use sprays and chemicals. Does anybody have any idea on how to get rid of the mildew?
I was thinking that maybe I should just rip out the tomatillo but it’s producing so much right now.
I thought that if I took off some of the offending leaves it might help.
What’s a gardener to do?
