Q.My Zucchini Won’t Grow All the Way and Then Shrivels Up

Sofia0118 added on May 24, 2011 | Answered

The plants are beautiful. Zucchini starts growing fine but stops at about 3-4″, then starts to shrivel up and turn yellow. . . almost like a prune. I keep reading not to pick them till they are at least 6-10″, but none get that big! What am I doing wrong? This is my first garden. Beans and tomatoes are doing pretty good.
