Like most of the midwest we've been hit by lots of rain over the last few weeks. A few days ago I noticed that some of my zucchini are starting to mold/rot at the bloom end.
I'm thinking it's because the flowers are getting wet and sticking to the fruit, and not drying out fast enough.
Would it be OK to pull all the flowers off the growing fruit? I have some that are about 3" that I'd like to make sure hit full growth.
