Thanks, Steve. I could be wrong as I'm pretty new at this, but I had a lot of cucumber beetles and the plants' demise (cukes, squash and muskmelons) looked like the descriptions of bacterial wilt. Definitely due for some soil tests though.

Ah well, this would have made my Turkish husband happy. I did buy some supposedly resistant hybrids and guess I should stick with those this year.
