White mold on vegetables

My, cukes, squash, pumpkin and peas have been hit with white mold the past 2 years. I decided to start a new garden spot, but wondering if I can use the old for flowers or plants not susceptible to the mold? Does the mold live in the soil? Should I avoid tilling the soil? Any suggestions and advice would be much appreciated! Thank you!

Autumn Blaze Maple wilting

I have an 4" diameter autumn blaze maple which was planted 3 years and this spring leafed out very healthy. Up until 2 weeks ago it had nice 3" length leaves. It has starting wilting on about 1/3 of the branches and the leaves die off in a few days. The nursery in Bemidji (20 miles away) where I purchased the tree 3 years ago thinks it might be from too much rain this spring, It looks like a diseased tree similar to a white oak or burr oak wilt with sporadic branches being affected unlike the top down like a red oak wilt. The pictures attached show how the leaves on the branch directly above the wilted leaves to appear healthy. Any suggestions?
