Zucchini is dying

November 12th, 2008 at 10:10 am

Today's weather was a lot hotter than expected and it might have killed the zucchini I transplanted yesterday. Even though I watered it this morning before leaving for work it still got burnt. I don't know if it is going to survive, tomorrow is going to be really hot again but it is going to cool down in the late afternoon. I'm hoping the watering it got this afternoon will help it survive. Lucky I didn't plant all the zucchini seedlings yesterday.

    I love that we are moving into winter where I live and I get to read about summer adventures and warm months where you live. Smile

    Can you rig a bit of shade for your plant until it gets its roots set? Zucchini and other cucurbits are known for not liking to be transplanted. Their roots are very sensitive. So usually its better to plant seed directly where you want the plant. Here, even a healthy zuke may wilt terribly every day yet revive in the evening.
