I have made a maiden attempt at Kitchen gardening. Cucumber seedlings that I transplanted in a raised bed climbed tall and fast. Just when I was feeling proud of myself seeing the tiny cucumber popping all over, there developed these black spots and mosaic virus on leaves. I tried spraying neem oil but did not have effect (perhaps b'cos i watered the plant the very next day! Someone advised I shd spray n.oil for a couple of consecutive days and let it be for another couple of days, right?..or wrong??) Yes'day I was forced to cut down most of the vines. My question(s)
* Shd I take out all vines? there seems to be mild infestation all over. or Shd I try neem oil treatment again & wait a couple of days?
* Any other suggested treatment?
So many tiny veggie are developing. Don't have the heart to destroy them. Can I consume the cucumber that has matured...or Am I crazy even to suggest it?
Ur suggestions greatly appreciated.
