Zucchini rotting
« on: July 06, 2020, 06:59:04 pm »
My zucchini are rotting before they become full grown. I haven't used my earthboxes in a few years, so I started all anew this year.
I've read that rotting can be from uneven watering and/or lack of calcium. Don't think it can be uneven watering since they are in earthboxes. Is it all right to add calcium to soil now or is there something I can add when I water? The leaves on my squash plants are gigantic....can they be taking away from the zucchini. I am also growing patty pan and they are doing really well (knock on wood!) Thanks in advance for any advice.

The problem is lack of pollination
Why Google, when you have me?
