Help! This is only my 2nd season gardening and last year went so smoothly I expected the same this year. I looked closely at my zucchini plant yesterday for the first time in awhile and I was shocked (and devastated) to see this!!
What is it? When I watered the plant, I noticed small black bugs crawling in and around the mess. There were also a bunch of ants. We have tons of ants in our yard and garden but until now they haven't seemed to be a problem. Here's a closer look...
Please, any help would be so greatly appreciated! I haven't gotten nearly enough zucchini for my liking yet, so I am hopeful this can be fixed.
