Diseased vegetable plants, too far gone. How to destroy?
I have some spaghetti squash, pumpkin vines and red kale plants that are eaten, infested and covered with powdery mildew. At this point I think the whole thing is top far gone to salvage. I tried the baking powder method, I sprayed a 3 in one fungicide and used the dish soap method. The few squash plants I had growing are eaten by pickle worms. So I am trying to find out the best way to destroy all of these contaminated and diseased plants and see if I can perhaps plant something else.
My red kale looks like swiss cheese. I have found worms and some red tiny beads on the undersides of the leaves. So these guys are also infected with something. Not sure how to proceed with them as well.
This is my first season gardening and I would like to continue to garden as much as I can before the winter. I live in Coastal Virginia.
Any advice is greatly appreciated.
