Tips on growing Zucchini

Zucchini is an awesome plant for first time gardeners. It is easy to grow and one plant will produce several zucchinis.

2012 Harvest
  • Don’t over plant- 2-3 plants will produce enough zucchini for a family
  • Pick Early- Zucchini can grow to over 60lbs, but if you pick them at 4-5in long there skin is soft and they will produce more.
  • Watch out for – vine borers, they are slug type bugs that go into the vine and eat it from the inside out. I lost my whole crop last year to them

Over grown (they were a surpise last year)
