I'm really really glad I found your initial suggestion. I was actually getting really depressed. I know that part of the beauty of this hobby of ours, is enjoying this amazing process that is bigger than ourselves, but after being reamed by this years conditions, I was very disheartened. My yield has been very bad. It's a real bummer to put so much thought, time, and passion into something just to have it fail for the most part.

Hopefully this treatment will remain as successful for me as it has been so only concern with it, is killing-off beneficials I will regularly supplement with compost tea next season, in hopes of re-introducing any friendlies that the bleach may harm. Preventative bleach sprays of lower concentration will begin long before any signs of sickness next year, and I'm no longer worried about my cucurbits!
