Fungus, chook poo, the back fence and other nasties
I couldn't figure out what was going wrong with my winged bean and the Rosella right alongside it. I think the fact that we still seem to be in the thick of the wet season might have something to do with it. I know my pawpaw trees have a fungal infection and they seem to get better when I treat them often to a skim milk and water drink spray. The brown spots on the bean looks like a fungus to me, I also saw insect damage on the leaves. I got out my handy little sprayer and mixed up a fungal spray, plus insect repellent. 20% skim milk, then chili and garlic, topped up with water. The winged bean is using the pigeon pea as a climbing support.
