Gardening fail...

So, Internet, do you have any ideas about saving my zucchinis? Yes, my zucchinis, the world's easiest-to-grow plant, are failing. They get about the size of a thumb and start to rot at the tip. There aren't any bugs on them, birds aren't getting to them, the moose haven't eaten them, they have big, healthy leaves and like a hundred giant flowers... they just start molding at the flower-end before they get big enough to pick. It's been miserably cold, and it supposedly frosted in town last week, but I don't think it's been that cold up here, and the soil seems to be at a good moisture content.

This, on the heels of The Dog knocking over one my potted potatoes and scattering teeny little red potatoes around his run for the pleasure of digging in the dirt and mangling the plants, makes me fear for my nuturing skills. I'm having a baby, and I can't grow zucchinis for God's sake.
