Post Looking for your feedback and sugg. for organic pest control 
Hello All,

I just read a helpful journal article reg. controlling white mildew and other pests on cucumbers and squash using diluted whole milk. Research has proved it effective...but what about all the other plants I have? Please take a look at my garden and give me any tried and true suggestions you have. I am new to veggie gardening but want to keep it organic.

Wishing you a healthy harvest! Smile

Looked at your garden and your layout looks great.

There are lots of organic "solutions" out there. Some work and some don't. While I try a lot of different things in my garden. I haven't tried them all. (I haven't had all the problems yet.)

What helps in any type of gardening is becoming a P.I. (Plant Investigator). Look at your plants every few days. Just a casual walk through the garden. Turning a few leaves over. Looking for spots or signs or trouble will go a long way. If you see something that doesn't look right, then investigate further, research on the internet and ask in forums like this.

I don't think diluted milk will harm other plants. Anything organic used in moderation like milk is bio-degrade harmlessly. I don't know that for a fact, but try a little on one plant and see if it makes any difference if you are really concerned.
