Adventures with Powdery Mildew

Are pumpkins supposed to be orange and full-grown already? It's August!

Yesterday was a sad day folks. I discovered the white stuff on some of my pumpkin leaves was powdery mildew, and it spread VERY quickly. I had to hack away at my gorgeous plants last night. There are quite a few fruits already set, and one that's already orange! Hopefully there are enough leaves left to keep things going.

All gone...

At least the tomatoes will have some more room now!
I just hope the disease didn't spread to them.

And, I don't know if I should harvest the broccoli head yet or not. It looks like it's gonna start to open quickly, but it's not very big at all. Any advice?
