Anthracnose on zucchinis and cucumber

Mid spring and my garden is already plagued with fungus. I think it might be anthracnose.
It’s gotten hold of my zucchini and cucumber, even after preventative weekly copper sprays.

Today I have tried to spray with milk after pruning all diseased leaves.

zucchini plants after pruning off all diseased leaves and spaying with milk. They look very naked now and probably need to spend most of their energy regrowing new leaves, rather then producing flowers and more fruit.
