This is powdery mildew. It is a fungal disease that attacks squash, killing the plants. Some varieties tolerate this disease better than others. Powdery mildew is more of a problem in the fall than in the spring. The material benomyl, or Benlate, is the most effective fungicide for the control of powdery mildew. Mildew occurs most often on old foliage of declining plants. Succession plantings of squash will provide vigorous, productive plants and allow removal of older, more susceptible plants.

it's our weather this year Irwin.  our nights have been cool and damp like fall.  the days have not gotten that hot.  it's just not a good garden year for us.

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

powdery white mildew, I have to battle it every year. believe it or not if you get it early you can use milk, 1 or 2 parts milk to 8 or nine parts water. this is the organic ways to do it, the problems is you have to apply it after every rain.

the other way and it looks like you might have to do it is liquid copper, it will kill that powdery mildew, if you dont get it off it will kill the plant
