How long does a Zucchini plant bear for?
Will a plant planted two weeks ago keep bearing squashes until frost or do they stop bearing long before that? In other words, should I be planting new plants every three or four weeks to take the place of the ones that stop bearing or is one planting at the beginning of the season good enough for the whole summer and fall? I planted ten zucchinis and they are growing the best they ever have for me, probably because I put half of a one cubic foot bag of steer manure in each planting hole and made berms around them so I can deep water them on my sloping ground. Are ten plants too many to plant at one time for a family of four?
