My garden vegetables are baffling me. Some are thriving, and others are wilted, whitish, and stunted, mainly the cucumbers. I see no beetles and the white color is in a thin layer on the stems. I admit I am a newbie to gardening, but I just planted about 3 - 4 weeks ago, and I really want to succeed. I have sprayed for fungus, but it does not seem to help. The plants aren't dying, but as tiny and crummy as they look, they might as well. Meanwhile, most of the other plants are doing pretty good, with a few showing some slight wilt, even though the soil has moisture. I have clay soil, but I have aerated, fertilized, and last year the plants did great. Any clue what I am doing wrong? What should I be looking for?
