I asked previously about fungus on my melons and I have sprayed twice now and it still is on the majority of the leaves. I have trimmed the dead leaves, but I would like to save the melons. What more can I do? Thanks

There's not much more you can do other than to try spraying fungicide to protect the unaffected leaves and to remove the infected leaves to remove the pathogens from the garden. Making sure your melon plants get lots of sunshine, keeping water off the leaves to the best of your ability, and pruning out the dead leaves to encourage good air circulation are the best ways of avoiding future fungal attacks. I hope your plants make it and your melons mature!
