I recently planted a 4'x4' garden. In one square I planted zuchini squash. They came up great, I have two clusters of about 4-5 plants on each mound. About a week ago the leaves started getting spots...now they look like they're rotting away or burning or something. I can't see any bugs or pests in the soil or on the plants. HELP !!

I assume that you are growing them organically? Put mulch under the leaves that may be laying on the ground and water weekly with seaweed/fish or Garrett Juice. You can add baking soda (4 tsp per gal) to your mixture too as it is an excellent fungicide. Look very closely to ensure you don't see any pests on the underside of the leaves. Let us know how it goes!
