For the first year in several decades I don’t have zucchini growing. I’m replacing my redwood raised beds that have lost the battle with termites so no zucchini. I still plan to sow some seeds for container zucchini.
Some years my zucchini plants have produced less than I would expect. Small fruit rots before maturing or cucumber beetles overtake my plants. Barbara Pleasant addresses both of these problems in her post at GrowVeg.

Now that the word’s out that I’m not growing zucchini, I might start receiving night drops at my front door.
