Growing fun:

  1. Choose a sunny spot in your garden with well-drained soil. Zucchini needs at least 6 hours of sunlight per day, and their roots need to be able to spread out easily.
  2. Amend the soil with compost or other organic matter. This will help to improve drainage and fertility.
  3. Warm the soil to at least 65 degrees Fahrenheit before planting. You can do this by covering the planting bed with black plastic mulch for a few weeks before planting.
  4. Sow the seeds directly in the ground, 1 inch deep and 2-3 feet apart. You can also start seeds indoors 2-3 weeks before your last frost date, and transplant them outdoors when the soil is warm enough.
  5. Thin the seedlings to one plant per hill. Do this when the seedlings have two or three true leaves.
  6. Zucchini plants need regular watering, especially during hot weather. Water deeply once a week, or more often if the weather is hot and dry.
  7. Fertilize the plants every two weeks with a balanced fertilizer.
  8. Mulch around the plants to help retain moisture and suppress weeds.
  9. Zucchini plants are susceptible to pests and diseases, so be on the lookout for problems. Common pests include aphids, cucumber beetles, and squash bugs. Common diseases include powdery mildew, anthracnose, and wilt.
  10. Zucchini are ripe when they are 6-8 inches long and have firm skin. Harvest the zucchini by cutting them from the vine with a sharp knife.

Here are some additional tips for growing zucchini:

  • Choose a variety that is suited to your climate and growing season.
  • If you are growing zucchini in a cool climate, you may need to use a hoop house or greenhouse to extend the growing season.
  • Zucchini are heavy feeders, so be sure to fertilize them regularly.
  • Mulching around the plants will help to retain moisture and suppress weeds.
  • Be on the lookout for pests and diseases, and treat them promptly if necessary.
