Pumpkin + Watermelon Update

The pumpkins are off to the races! Also, the white leaf below is not powdery mildew, it’s just a leaf about to die.  We bought seeds that are specifically powdery mildew resistant this year… hopefully it stays true!

Here’s one of our watermelon, he’s growing great, but he has a bad case of aphids.  Gah, I hate aphids, they ruin my life.  I got the jet hose out and squirted them off, but I know they’ll be back and this is going to turn into a everyday event.  I’ve tried the soapy water solution as well but it didn’t really work.  Any suggestions to keep aphids away for good?
