Pumpkin mildew or fungus??

Sun Aug 04, 2019 5:36 pm

Well someone gave me pumpkin seeds that can grow 1200 lb pumpkins. I don’t anticipate growing anything near that big but I’m giving it my best shot. But my pumpkin leaves started to get white spots and are wilting and dying. From my research I thought it was powdery mildew and I found neem oil at the hardware store. Treated once and it said to wait 7 days. Today is day 7 so I will treat tonight but there are still white spots and now additional leaves have them. Hoping not to lose this plant. Can anyone offer advice? I’ve included photos for reference. Thanks so much. I appreciate any help.

My zucchini started the same and the leaves died off and the sickness spread. I think it’s a fungus. I treated with sulphur powder today and pounded the affected leaves.
