via A Healthy Life For Me

Let’s start with these Zucchini growing tips from A Healthy Life For Me. It’s important that your zucchini is planted in an area where it will receive at least 10 hours of direct sunlight daily.

The process of growing Zucchinis from seeds allows you to get a jump on the traditional growing season. When it comes to your soil, you should aim for a PH level in the 6-7 range. This will ensure a bumper crop!

You can start your seeds indoors. You keep them inside for 4-6 weeks prior to planting in your garden.

It’s important that all chances of frost have passed. Once you have successfully planted your seedlings, mulching around your plants will assist with water retention. It will also help to keep the soil stable.

These 2 key elements are very important and should not be overlooked. The last thing you want is your crop to be negatively affected.

How To Control Mildew

via Pakagri

If your plants are affected by powdery spots, the leaves may turn brown. Amy of A Healthy life for Me has a great remedy for this common issue.

She suggests an organic remedy that uses Cows Milk.

Mix 1 part milk with 9 parts water and spray the stems and tops of leaves with the solution. You should also reapply after rain.

She also says you can try to prevent Powdery Mildew by spraying leaves with a mixture of 1 teaspoon baking soda in 1-quart water.

This raises the pH, creating an unwelcoming environment for powdery mildew. Speaking of PH levels, Zucchinis should have a soil PH in the order of 6-7. You should also harvest when the plants are small. This will result in a more flavorful crop.

As Zucchini’s don’t hold their flavor for long, you should use them within a week of harvesting. Store them in the fridge until ready for use.
