Post fungicide questions
I've heard of people using a limestone based fungicide made fron household cleaning powders like Bon Ami, has anyone else ever heard of or tried this? I guess you just mix a certain amount of it with water, but I can't really find anything out there about this specific method.

Here is a fungicide recipe I came across in one of my books. It doesn't contain Bon Ami, but it looks interesting enough. The recipe calls for: 1/2 cup molasses, 1/2 cup powdered milk, 1 teaspoon baking soda, and 1 gallon water. Mix the molasses, powdered milk, and baking soda into a paste. Place the mixture into the toe of an old nylon stocking, and let it seep in a gallon of warm water for several hours. Then strain, and use the liquid as a fungus-fighting spray every 2 weeks throughout the growing season.
I haven't tried this yet, so I can't comment on its effectiveness.

If anyone does try this, please post your results.

I've heard of both the diluted baking soda and diluted milk as working.

That does sound interesting, Molly, I think I'll try it and I'll post my results later in the year. Thanks.
