Hi all, I have grey powdery patches on some of my tomato plants. How can I eradicate it? I have done a search, and it pretty much all pertains to greenhouse tomatoes and getting them adequate ventilation. I am thinking of spraying the affected parts with a vinegar water solution , if it is a mold, it will kill it right?

Not sure, but regular old milk might do it, believe it or not.  It's been known to help with both fungus and powdery mildew.

Thanks heatherdeg. I may try that.

 

I have cut off the leaves, as my research on it said that it does spread very quickly and will basically kill off the plants. There are some parts of the plant that are wilting and some that also look like they are dying. i am hoping to save my small crop.

 

We have not had much rain here, but it has been humid, which apparently leads to the grey mold. 

 

who knows? Anyway, thanks.
