Does anyone ever lose zucchini to frost?
Well, after just a couple months of producing (relatively slowly), my zucchini have the beginnings of PM. I just sprayed with a baking soda solution, since I didn't have any milk in the house and wasn't about to waste my heavy cream on zucchini plants, but I'm sure it's only a matter of time before it takes over all 11 of the summer squash. As a first year gardener and after all of the zucchini horror stories I've read, I was really hoping for such an insane amount of squash that I'd be begging people to take it, especially with so many plants, and it just wasn't the case this year. Ah well, next year.
It seems like this is a pretty common story around here though. If it's not SVB, it's PM. Something pesty or diseasy always seems to take over before weather can kill off summer squash, so I'm wondering if anyone's ever make it and stay healthy until dying from the cold. I don't think I've read any "my zucchini were killed by frost" stories here yet.
