I took a pass on tomatoes and peppers this year and tried squash and zucchini instead, hoping for a more bountiful harvest, but no such luck. I planted the squash and zucchini seeds, and the plants seemed to thrive.
I had about six pots of plants, and every plant was loaded with blooms. I mean, TONS of them. And then, nothing happened, and the plants eventually withered and died. All of them.
I have no idea what went wrong. Too little water? Too much? Not enough sun? Should I not have planted them in pots? I thought squash and zucchini were supposed to be easy!
Any thoughts on how I should go about planting and caring for squash and zucchini differently next time?
