Why Baby Zucchini Dies When 2-3 Inches Long

Zucchinis in my garden die or rot off when they are two to three inches long. I don’t see any surviving ones but all dead ones. On the other hand, the leaves and stems are huge. They are in good location at the corner of the fence (double sided with vertical bars in between layers, air can go through easily) and facing south and west. I gave it compost fertilizer before planting, have applied Miracle Gro every 2 weeks and watered every 2 days when it is dry/sunny. Would you please point out what’s wrong with my zucchini plants and how to help them to produce some real zucchinis?
