Cucumber Mildew

I have grown some cucumbers and courgettes from seed outside for the first time. I have some amazing looking plants, but they have all developed mildew on the foliage....help! I would prefer to treat organically.....

    Cut off the mildew covered leaves (or just the worst affected ones if it's most of them), and then make sure you water the compost/ground and not the leaves. Mildew is just a fact of life with these plants, they'll be fine and send out new leaves and fruit.
