Sorry, Cyndi. I've grown zucchini for many years but the only problem
I ever had was from borers. If I watched closely and caught it in time
I could split the stem, pick out the borer, throw some dirt over the
injured stem and it would probably recover. The past two years,
however, I have not been able to get any squashes established.
I have planted seeds repeatedly, both in the garden and in the
house under lights. In the garden I am sure chipmunks dug up
the seed and ate them, for I found the empty hulls lying around.
When I put the ones I had started in peat pots indoors out on the
screened porch to harden, they were pulled out of the pots and
broken up - again chipmunks, I guess. Most discouraging season
I have ever had.

I don't grow it either Cyndi - I don't have the room (and can't afford the
water). I'm sorry!
