I am a very new gardener (this is my first ever crop of plants- I have grown potted herbs, succulents, cacti, flowers, etc, but no fruit or vegetables). I have a square foot garden on my balcony. I am currently growing cucumbers, patio tomatoes, bush beans, basil, cajun belle peppers, and chives in my square foot garden. About a month ago, I started noticing some odd yellowing/wilting/dying of the lower leaves of my cucumber plant, which has seemed to spread to my bush beans and my tomatoes, as well as ever so slightly to my pepper plant. I've sprayed it with a combo fungicide/pesticide, but it hasn't seemed to do much good, and I've been trying to not over or under water by watering when the top inch of soil is dry, which is what I've read to do. (so about every 3 days.) Over the past month or so I've been doing so much research trying to figure out what the problem is, but I'm totally lost and unfamiliar with terminology so I've been struggling. If anyone has any ideas/suggestions as to what this might be, I would so appreciate it. I've attached some pictures of my plants.
(edit: sorry, messed up the uploading. They should be there now.)

|Could be a fungal infection. There is a spray you can use (for organic gardens) to counteract the fungus.
There are many different remedies for fungus on plants; this is only one I have used.
