Zucchini should be about the easiest thing in the world to grow, right? Well, my two zucc plants are lush, full, large with lots of zucchini's growing. I've picked about 10 so far but only 2 of those are good. The other 8 went into compost because they get about 3-4 inches long and the ends start turning yellow and they are soft. What is causing this?

When I planted the zucchini, I added some veggie fertilizer, plus some lime (which I have to amend in the area I plant my tomotos in or they get blossom end rot - so I added some to the zucchini area also. not sure if lime is the reason but am throwing that out there incase anyone thinks added lime is the problem).

any ideas why my zucchini's turn yellow and soften before they are even ready to pick?

thanks for the response on the zucc issue. I think you may be right on that. I'm now getting more good zucchini and haven't noticed any more "yellow" ones. I snapped off about 4 bad ones a week ago and all the ones that have been growing since then are good healthy looking ones.
