Default Cucumber Mosaic Virus (w/ Pix)

Well, it ain't no fun when your plants get infected with disease.
But on the plus side, I get to create these handy documents with
photos showing the disease.
I hope to expand this to improve the information, but for now, I
hope the pictures are worth a thousand words for those of you needing
a diagnosis.

Here's a few links to good descriptions of how to prevent CMV and what to do if you have it.
Good news according to the Cornell site is that it doesn't persist in plant debirs, nor is it trasmitted
in the seed.


And here's a link to photos of the insect vectors of CMV:

Intelligence is knowing a tomato is a fruit.
Wisdom is knowing not to put one in a fruit salad.
