I planted a ton of yellow &I planted a ton of yellow & green squash out back this year, my first year ever growing. I have harvested about 8 yellow squash so far- but NO Zucchini. Not one. It seems an irritating group of rodents (they've eaten too much to be only one) have moved in on my zucc's and eat all my femal blossoms long before they can bloom. VERY Depressing. However, my question is; if a female flower blossom is pollinated, then eaten off the tiny yellow (or green) squash, will the fruit still grow to maturity? Or does the flower need to stay put for awhile until the squash is well on its way? :( The Voles are starting to eat my baby yellows now as they have completely consumed my zuccs!) Is there ANY thing I can spray (organically) around my zucc's to save at least ONE zucc from any of my 30 zucc plants!? Thank you.
