So, I went after each of those grubs. Yeah, it got personal.
I googled the situation to see what went wrong. I can’t remember the exact google search, but it must have been something like ‘zucchini + infested.’ Google suggested one addition term like ‘zucchini + infested + worms.’ (I wish Google would start suggesting these terms at the beginning of the growing process when I just typed ‘zucchini’). My story was replicated what seemed like 10 X over on the internet. No one had anything to say other than “Yeah. It happened. But I got one good zucchini out of it!”
What? One good zucchini!?! That’s all I got too.
Listen, my plant was thriving. Thriving. I had another good sized zucchini growing. I was taking my time picking that one too. Of course some massive grub got it.
I learned a few lessons. But that’s going into another post. I’m pretty miffed right now.
